Those identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would have been notified by MOH.

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 there have been confirmed cases of COVID-19 as the National Environmental Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.

There were 16 new COVID-19 infections reported on Wednesday, including 10 community cases. 

Seven community cases are linked to the Changi Airport cluster, which now has 25 cases. It is the second largest cluster after the Tan Tock Seng Hospital cluster, which has 44 cases. 

The only unlinked case on Wednesday was a 33-year-old man who works as an operating theatre nurse at the Sengkang General Hospital.
