Other locations include the Broadway food court at Sim Lim Square, the Cantine eatery at Paya Lebar Square and a Japanese restaurant at Kampong Bahru Road. 

The full list of locations are as follows:

  1. VivoCity mall on Jan 8, between 11.10am and 2.25pm
  2. Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodles at VivoCity on Jan 8, between 11.30am and 12pm
  3. ShinnSato Japanese Cuisine at 79 Kampong Bahru Road on Jan 8, between 7pm and 10.45pm

  6. Bedok Mall on Jan 12, between 8.25pm and 9.30pm
  7. Golden Mile Complex on Jan 15, between 12.45pm and 1.45pm
  8. Broadway Food Centre at Sim Lim Square on Jan 16, between 1.30pm and 4.10pm

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 your health closely for 14 days from your date of visit as a precautionary measure, MOH advised. 

There were 15 new COVID-19 cases reported in Singapore on Thursday. Of these, 14 were imported, with one in the community.  

MOH said the sole community case reported on Friday is linked to the cluster at BS Industrial & Construction Supply in Kallang, bringing the total infections there to eight. 

On Friday, the multi-ministry COVID-19 taskforce announced that households in Singapore can only receive up to a maximum of eight visitors a day with effect from Jan 26 (Tuesday). 

This is in light of the rise in community COVID-19 cases, as well as the possible risk of transmission during Chinese New Year. 

People should also visit no more than two households a day as much as possible, Mr Lawrence Wong, the minister-in-charge of the multi-ministry COVID-19 task force added.
