SINGAPORE — Two fast-food restaurants – including a newly-opened Shake Shack outlet – a gym, and a shopping centre were added by the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Monday (10 September) to a list of public venues visited by community cases while infectious.
Shake Shack at Liat Towers – which was opened last month – was visited on 1 September from 7.35pm to 9pm.
4Fingers Crispy Chicken at Changi Airport Terminal 3 was visited on 9 September from 1.55pm to 2.35pm while Han’s at Waterway Point was visited on 6 September from 8pm to 8.55pm.
Anytime Fitness at Queensway Shopping Centre was visited on four occasions: on 3, 4, 6, and 8 September between 8.20pm to 9.30pm.
Lastly, West Mall was visited on 8 September from 3pm to 4.15pm.
Those who had been identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would already have been notified, said the MOH.
As a precautionary measure, visitors who had been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit, it added.
They should see a doctor 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,” the ministry added.
The list of visited public venues excludes residence, workplaces, healthcare facilities, and public transport and will be updated on a rolling 14-days basis, or one incubation period, and as epidemiological investigations progress.
On the same day, the MOH confirmed 48 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore, taking the country’s total to 57,454.
