A Kopitiam outlet at Changi Airport Terminal 3 and Junction Nine mall in Yishun were added to the list of places visited by COVID-19 cases while infectious by the Ministry of Health (MOH). 

The Kopitiam outlet was visited on four occasions in five days, while another location, Heavenly Wang cafe at Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 public area, was visited twice in two days too.

The details for the locations are: 

  1. Heavenly Wang cafe at Changi Airport Terminal 3’s public area on Nov 19, between 9.15pm and 10.15pm and Nov 20 between 9.20pm and 10.35pm

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 your health closely for 14 days from your date of visit as a precautionary measure, MOH advised.

10 new COVID-19 cases were reported on Tuesday. Of these, eight were imported, with one in the community and one in a dormitory. 

The sole community case is a 66-year-old cleaner who works at the transit area in Changi Airport Terminal 3. The case is currently unlinked and was detected through the authorities’ routine testing of workers at the frontline of COVID-19 operations.
