New locations visited by cases during infectious period
Over 40 new locations were added to the list of public places visited by cases in the community during infectious period.
The new additions are highlighted in yellow.
Here’s the full list:
Those who had been identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would already have been notified by MOH. 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 are urged to 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.
MOH adds that there is no need to avoid these places as the National Environment Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.
