SINGAPORE — The Ministry of Health (MOH) said on Tuesday (July 13) that from its investigations, there is likely ongoing Covid-19 transmission at three entertainment outlets, which will be closed for two weeks from July 13 to 27.

In its evening update on the coronavirus situation here, it said that the venues have been closed to the public to “break any potential chain of transmission and enable deep cleaning”.

The three premises are:

  • Club Dolce at Balestier Point, a mixed commercial and residential building

  • Wu Bistro at Golden Mile Complex on Beach Road

  • Club De Zara at Textile Centre along Jalan Sultan

MOH will now conduct special testing operations for workers of Wu Bistro and Club De Zara. This is in addition to the mandatory testing operations at three other entertainment outlets that it had announced on Monday, which included Club Dolce. 

It will also extend free Covid-19 testing to members of the public who had visited the two newly listed premises between June 29 and July 13.

MOH said previously that it is investigating cases of coronavirus infection among Vietnamese social hostesses who had frequented karaoke lounges and clubs that are now operating as food-and-beverage (F&B) outlets, as well as their social contacts.

Those who have visited similar KTV lounges or clubs that are operating as F&B outlets as well as those who have interacted with Vietnamese social hostesses “in any setting” may also get tested for Covid-19 for free.

These visitors and those who have gone to the two other premises are advised to monitor their health closely.

They should also minimise social interactions as far as possible for 14 days from their date of visit or interaction.

“They are encouraged to see a doctor immediately if they feel unwell,” MOH added.
