SINGAPORE – The Spread, an eatery at the National University of Singapore, Tekka Centre and Waterway Point were among the new venues added by the Ministry of Health (MOH), on Sunday (13 September), to a list of public places visited by COVID-19 community cases during their infectious period.
The other new venues include Ameen Makan House at 4 Cheong Chin Nam Road and The Clementi Mall.
In particular, The Spread – located within the Mochtar Riady Building at 15 Kent Ridge Drive – was visited on three occasions: from 12.15pm to 1.10pm on 2 September, from 1.10pm to 2.10pm on 4 September and 3.45pm to 5pm on 7 September.
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 49 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore, taking the country’s total to 57,406.
