SINGAPORE – Hillion Mall and Haniffa Pte Ltd at Dunlop Street were added by the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Saturday (19 September) to a list of public venues visited by community cases while infectious.
Haniffa, a grocery and departmental store at 118 Dunlop Street, was visited from 11.05am to 11.50am on 7 September. Hillion Mall at 17 Petir Road was visited from 3.20pm to 4.15pm on 15 September.
Those who had been identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would already have been notified, said the MOH.
As a precautionary measure, visitors 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 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.
“There is no need to avoid places where confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been. The National Environment Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection,” the ministry added.
The list of visited public venues excludes residence, workplaces, healthcare facilities, and public transport and will be updated on a rolling 14-days basis, or one incubation period, and as epidemiological investigations progress.
On the same day, the MOH confirmed 15 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore, taking the country’s total to 57,558.
