Those identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would have been notified by MOH.

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 there have been confirmed cases of COVID-19 as the National Environmental Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.

There were 31 new COVID-19 infections reported on Saturday, including 19 in the community. Three cases were linked to the Learning Point Tuition Centre cluster, while two cases were linked to the Sengkang General Hospital nurse who tested positive previously. 

The Changi Airport cluster grew to 68 cases, with eight new infections linked to the cluster on Saturday. 

There were also two unlinked community cases on Saturday, including a 53-year-old Singaporean working as a personal chauffeur who tested positive for the B1617 variant.
