SINGAPORE — Our Tampines Hub and a Sheng Siong supermarket outlet at Elias Mall in Pasir Ris were added by the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Thursday (26 August) to a list of public places visited by COVID-19 community cases while they were infectious.
Our Tampines Hub, located at 1 Tampines Walk, was visited from 3pm to 3.45pm on 22 August, according to the MOH’s daily press release.
The Sheng Siong outlet and 623 F&B at Elias Mall, located at 623 Elias Road, was visited from 7.45am to 9.05am on 19 August.
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, said the MOH.
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 77 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore, taking the country’s total to 56,572. It also announced that all visitors to SLR Revolution at the Excelsior Shopping Centre between 15 and 18 August will be tested for COVID-19, after two cases were found to be linked to the camera shop.
