Six locations, including Causeway Point and the Teo Heng KTV Studio at Bedok Point, were added to the list of places visited by COVID-19 cases while infectious by the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Sunday (Jun 20).

Other locations include a bakery at Takashimaya, NTUC FairPrice at Bukit Merah Central and Market Square@Downtown East.

Tiong Bahru Yong Tau Hu, which is linked to several COVID-19 cases and was previously added to the list on Friday, was visited twice between Jun 12 and Jun 14 too. 

The details for the locations are:

  1. St Leaven Bakery at Takashimaya on Jun 6, 6.45am to 5pm
  2. Causeway Point mall in Woodlands on Jun 6, 4.35pm to 5.10pm
  3. Tiong Bahru Yong Tao Hu at 56 Eng Hoon Street on Jun 12, 6am to 5pm; Jun 14, 5am to 4.20pm
  4. NTUC FairPrice at 166 Bukit Merah Central on Jun 17, 10.35am to 12.40pm
  5. Teo Heng KTV Studio at Bedok Point on Jun 17, 11am to 1pm
  6. Market Square@Downtown East on Jun 17, 8pm to 9pm

The list of places excludes residences, healthcare facilities and public transport.

Those identified as close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases would have already been notified by MOH.

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.

There were nine COVID-19 community cases reported on Sunday (Jun 20). Three were linked to the cluster at Bukit Merah View, which has 73 confirmed cases so far. 

The cases include a 63-year-old warehouse assistant, an 86-year-old retiree and a 35-year-old man who works at Tiong Bahru Yong Tao Hu.

The other linked case involves an 81-year-old woman who developed a cough and fatigue on Friday (Jun 18) but did not see a doctor. She was detected as part of surveillance testing for visitors who visited 115 and 116 Bukit Merah View.

There were also five unlinked cases reported on Sunday – a 24-year-old financial consultant, a 22-year-old dental assistant, a 52-year-old Housing and Development Board engineer and two retirees. 

This is the highest number of unlinked cases reported since Saturday (Jun 12), when five unlinked cases were also reported.
