Those identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would have been notified by the Ministry of Health (MOH).
Individuals who were at these 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 symptoms of acute respiratory infection (such as cough, sore throat and runny nose) develop, as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and inform the doctor of their exposure history.
