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.

Ten new COVID-19 cases were reported on Sunday.

Five cases were already in quarantine and three were detected through active surveillance. The remaining two cases are currently unlinked.

Of the eight linked cases, four are linked to a cluster at 115 Bukit Merah View Market and Food Centre. All 182 stalls in the centre will be closed for deep cleaning from Jun 13 to Jun 15. 

MOH has also identified a new cluster with an unlinked community case, an engineer at Ecoxplore. Two community cases, his household contacts, were linked to that cluster on Sunday.

The other unlinked community case was a 23-year-old nursing aide who worked at the Hougang outlet of the nursing home All Saints Home.

The remaining linked cases include a 59-year-old part-time cleaner at Crystal Lodge, and a 66-year-old retiree. Both were close contacts of previous cases.
