Eight COVID-19 cases were detected in three different households.
All residents living in Block 325A Sumang Walk in Punggol will have to undergo mandatory COVID-19 tests after eight cases were found in three different households.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) announced in a statement on Monday (Jun 7) that mandatory Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests will be conducted for all residents to prevent any possible spread of the virus in the community.
The COVID-19 tests will be conducted at the pavilion of Block 324 Sumang Walk on Jun 8 and 9, between 9am and 4pm.
MOH is also encouraging visitors who have been to the block between May 10 and Jun 5 to undergo the voluntary PCR tests.
MOH has already issued leaflets and sent SMS notifications to the affected residents.
Those who are awaiting their test results are advised to minimise social interactions, monitor their health closely and consult a doctor immediately if they feel unwell.
If a COVID-19 case is detected, MOH will isolate the case, identify all close contacts, test and quarantine them to protect the community from further transmission.
