The St Leaven Bakery was visited multiple times between May 27 and Jun 6. A 40-year-old baker at the bakery was among one of the four community cases reported on Thursday. 

The other location added onto the list on Thursday is the Bukit Merah View Market and Hawker Centre, which was visited multiple times between Jun 6 and Jun 9. A 74-year-old man, who was also among the community cases on Thursday, works in a sundry store at the location. 

The full details for the locations are:

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.
