Two locations in the West side of Singapore were listed by the Ministry of Health on Thursday (Jun 11) as places visited by confirmed COVID-19 cases.

The FairPrice Xtra in JEM at Jurong East was visited by a confirmed case on Jun 6, between 3pm to 4pm, while Pioneer Mall at Jurong West Street 61 was visited by a confirmed case on Jun 8, between 9am and 10.15am.

Earlier this week, MOH also added Hougang Green Shopping Mall onto its list. A confirmed case had visited the mall on Jun 3 between 12pm and 1pm.

There are 15 locations on MOH’s list currently. Other places on the list include Tanglin Mall, IMM, Mustafa Centre and Tampines Mall.

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.

MOH said there is no need to avoid places in the list, as the National Environment Agency will engage with the management of those locations to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.

There were 422 new COVID-19 cases announced on Thursday. Of the five cases in the community, two were uncovered because of proactive surveillance and screening, while two were already quarantined.

754 more cases were discharged. Only 227 COVID-19 patients remain in the hospital, with only two in critical condition. The remaining 11,849 are isolated and cared for at community facilities.
