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.

Two additional cases are linked to a 28-year-old Singaporean engineer at Patec, including a seven-month-old girl and a 29-year-old Singaporean woman who has an administrative role at Sephora. Both are family members of the original case.
