Kallang Wave Mall and the Seoul Garden outlet in Bugis Junction were among five new additions to the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) list of places visited by COVID-19 cases during their infectious period.

A McDonald’s outlet in Bukit Batok, a food court in Woodlands and a restaurant at Guoco Tower in Tanjong Pagar were the other additions to the list, announced MOH on Tuesday (Aug 18).

The details for the locations are:

1. Kallang Wave Mall on Aug 7, 3.15pm to 4.15pm
2. Seoul Garden in Bugis Junction on Aug 7, 5.30pm to 7.30pm
3. SBCD Korean Tofu House in Guoco Tower on Aug 8, 8.20pm to 9.30pm
4. Wan Shun Foodcourt in 888 Plaza at 888 Woodlands Drive 50 on Aug 9, 10pm to 1am
5. McDonald’s Bukit Batok at 632 Bukit Batok Central on Aug 15, 5.30pm to 6.30pm

The list is updated by MOH on a rolling 14-day basis, or one incubation period, and as epidemiological investigations progress.

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.

There was only one community case among the 100 new COVID-19 cases reported in Singapore on Tuesday. The case was picked up as part of MOH’s screening of all staff in the public bus industry who work at depots and interchanges.
