The Fairprice Finest outlets at Bukit Panjang Plaza and 111 Somerset were among three new locations visited by COVID-19 cases during their infectious period.

The latest additions to the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) list of places visited by COVID-19 cases on Tuesday (Aug 11) included two other outlets in 111 Somerset and the Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre.

The details for the locations are:

1. Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre on Aug 8, 9am to 10am
2. Family First Chiropractic Clinic, Hvala, FairPrice Finest at 111 Somerset on Aug 8, 1pm to 3.30pm
3. FairPrice Finest at Bukit Panjang Plaza on Aug 8, 4pm to 4.45pm

Other locations currently on the list include Decathlon at FairPrice Hub, West Mall and the Bukit Batok ActiveSG Gym.

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

If you were at any of the locations during the specified timings, you should monitor their health closely for 14 days from your date of visit as a precautionary measure, MOH advised.

“They should 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,” the ministry added.

Singapore reported 61 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, including two from the community. Both community cases are linked to previous cases.

The number of new cases in the community has remained stable at an average of two cases per day in the past two weeks, said MOH.
