SINGAPORE — The Night Safari and Chinatown Complex were among a dozen locations added to a list of public places that had been visited by Covid-19 cases during their infectious period.

In its second update on the coronavirus situation in Singapore on Wednesday (June 16), the Ministry of Health (MOH) said that the infectious persons had been to these places at various times as shown in the chart below:

MOH said that it would have already notified individuals who were identified as close contacts of the confirmed cases.

"As a precautionary measure, persons who had been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit," it added.

"They should see a doctor promptly 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."

Individuals may access the SafeEntry Location Matching Self-Check service via the TraceTogether mobile application, SingPass app, or at https://wereyouthere.safeentry.gov.sg to check whether they were at these locations during the specified timings, based on their own SafeEntry records.

Members of the public do not need to avoid places where confirmed cases of Covid-19 have been, the ministry said.

The National Environment Agency will engage the management of the affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.

On Wednesday, MOH reported 24 new cases of Covid-19 in Singapore, 19 of which were in the community. Three of these were not linked to any earlier cases.

The remaining five were imported.
