The list excludes residences, workplaces, healthcare facilities and public transport.

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 20 COVID-19 infections reported on Saturday, with seven in the community. 

Two community cases are linked to the Pasir Panjang Terminal cluster. 

The remaining five community cases are unlinked, with three of them working at Changi Airport. MOH will conduct “special testing operations” for all staff members working in Terminals 1 and 3, as well as Jewel Changi Airport. 

A student from the Victoria Junior College also tested positive for the virus and 95 students and eight staff members have been placed on quarantine order. The school will also move to full home-based learning for a week.
