The list is updated by MOH on a rolling 14-day basis, or one incubation period, and as epidemiological investigations progress.

Individuals who were at those locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from the date of their visit. 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 as the National Environment Agency will engage the management of the affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.
