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.

MOH reported 28 new COVID-19 infections on Sunday, with 10 cases in the community. 

Four cases are linked to a new cluster at Changi Airport and three cases are linked to the Tan Tock Seng Hospital cluster. The remaining three cases are currently unlinked.

With a new cluster detected at Changi Airport, MOH has started a “special COVID-19 testing operations” for all workers in Terminals 1 and 3, as well as Jewel Changi Airport. From May 10, the Changi Airport Terminal 3 Basement 2 will be temporarily closed to the public.
