SINGAPORE — The Ministry of Health (MOH) on Tuesday (June 16) added two locations — the Prime supermarket at King George’s Avenue near Lavender MRT station and a specialty store at Syed Alwi Road — to a list of public places that had been visited by Covid-19 cases during their infectious period.

In its evening update on the coronavirus situation in Singapore, the ministry said that the infectious patients had visited:

The health ministry said that it would have already notified individuals who had been 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," the ministry said.

"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."
