SINGAPORE – A FairPrice outlet at Hillion Mall and Newton Food Centre were among the new locations added by the Ministry of Health (MOH) to the list of public places visited by COVID-19 cases in the community during their infectious period.

As a precautionary measure, persons who had been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit. They should see a doctor promptly if they develop symptoms of acute respiratory infection (such as cough, sore throat and runny nose), as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and inform the doctor of their exposure history.

“There is no need to avoid places where confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been. The National Environment Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection,” said MOH.
