The malls were closed amid "likely ongoing transmission" of COVID-19 among visitors, said MOH.
Two malls in Jurong East, JEM and Westgate, will be closed for 14 days from Sunday (May 23), the Ministry of Health (MOH) said.
The closure, which will run until Jun 6, comes amid “likely ongoing transmission” of COVID-19 among visitors.
On Saturday, MOH announced that there were 10 recent COVID-19 cases linked to the malls, including four detected through testing operations.
A special testing operation for staff working in both malls is ongoing, while those who visited both malls between May 10 and May 14 can also get tested for free.
Those heading to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital can still do so through Westgate, while the office towers at these locations will remain open.
Among the new community cases reported on Saturday, two had gone to the Westgate mall. Both cases are unlinked and their infection was detected when they got themselves tested.
One of them is a 30-year-old Singaporean man who works as an engineer at Sembcorp Marine.
The other is a 54-year-old Singaporean who works as a warehouse manager at Sony Electronics. He has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, having received his second dose on May 21.
Another unlinked case, a 24-year-old Malaysian, works as a kitchen assistant at Fun Toast at Westgate Tower. He developed anosmia, or the loss of sense of smell, on May 19 and was tested after he visited a clinic.
Anyone who has visited Westgate and JEM malls since May 10 is advised to monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit, said MOH.
