Those identified as close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases would have already been notified by MOH.

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

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 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.

There were 15 COVID-19 community cases reported on Tuesday (Jun 22). Three were linked to the cluster at Bukit Merah View, which has 81 confirmed cases so far. 

The new cases at Bukit Merah View cluster include an 11-year-old Singaporean student from Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus (Kellock), a 32-year-old Singaporean man and a 43-year-old Malaysian stall assistant at the Bukit Merah View market.

Two new clusters were also identified.

The first cluster at 90 Redhill Close includes three cases – one unlinked community case and two linked community cases – which led to a mandatory testing process for residents of seven housing blocks in Redhill.

The unlinked case from the cluster involves a 79-year-old Singaporean retiree who developed a fever and cough but did not see a doctor. He was detected on Jun 21 as part of surveillance testing for residents of the Redhill Close area.

The second cluster involves a 41-year-old Filipino foreign domestic worker who tested positive for COVID-19 on Jun 14 after developing symptoms such as sore throat, cough and anosmia.

A 52-year-old permanent resident who works as a consultant was identified as a link to this cluster on Tuesday. MOH reported that the man had been vaccinated and had been working from home since May 1.

The other unlinked cases include a 26-year-old analyst who works at Deutsche Bank, a 36-year-old Malaysian driver at Omni Aquatic Supplies and two retirees.
