Four locations, including the Decathlon outlet at The Centrepoint and the Uniqlo outlet at Orchard Central, were added to the list of locations visited by COVID-19 cases while they were infectious by the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Tuesday (Jun 8). 

Other locations added onto the list include the Scarlett Supermarket at People’s Park Complex and the Four Leaves outlet at ION Orchard, which was visited four times between Jun 3 and Jun 6. 

The full details for the locations are:

  1. Four Leaves at ION Orchard on Jun 3, 9am to 4pm; Jun 4, 1pm to 9.30pm; Jun 5, 9am to 4pm; Jun 6, 1pm to 9.30pm

The list of places exclude 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.

Singapore reported nine new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday, including three in the community. 

Among the community cases, one is linked to Mindsville@Napiri cluster. 

The other two community cases, a 35-year-old retail assistant at a bakery in ION Orchard and a 54 year-old man who works at shipping company NYK Shipmanagement, are unlinked. 

MOH added that an 86-year-old Singaporean woman died from complications due to COVID-19 infection on Tuesday, bringing Singapore’s COVID-19 death toll to 34.
