Five locations were added onto the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) list of places visited by COVID-19 cases on Saturday (Aug 1). Other new places added were an eatery and a supermarket in Choa Chu Kang.

The details for the locations are:

1. Ananas Cafe at 10 Choa Chu Kang Avenue 4 on Jul 25, 12.30pm to 2pm
2. Botanist in CT Hub at 2 Kallang Avenue on Jul 25, 6pm to 8pm

5. Omakase Burger at Wisma Atria on Jul 29, 7pm to 8.40pm

The list is updated by MOH on a rolling 14-day basis, or one incubation period, and as epidemiological investigations progress. Other locations on the list currently include four outlets in Hillion Mall and an eatery at the Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub.

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 307 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday, including one in the community. The case, which is currently unlinked, was detected through MOH’s enhanced community testing.

The number of new cases in the community has dropped to an average of three per day in the past week, from an average of seven per day in the week before, said MOH.
