SINGAPORE — A food court and two eateries within the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) campus were among new additions made by the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Tuesday (8 September) to a list of public places visited by COVID-19 community cases while infectious.
They are the North Spine Food Court and Paik’s Bibim at the NTU North Spine Plaza at 76 Nanyang Drive as well as the Quad Cafe within the NTU School of Biological Sciences at 60 Nanyang Drive.
Other additions include Yuhua Market & Hawker Centre, which was visited on two occasions; Anjana Kitchen at Vision Exchange; Essen at The Pinnacle @ Duxton; and Apgujeong Hair Studio at JEM.
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, said the MOH.
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 47 new COVID-19 cases in Singapore, taking the country’s total to 57,091. It also announced that all visitors to SLR Revolution at the Excelsior Shopping Centre between 15 and 18 August have tested negative for COVID-19, after three cases were found to be linked to the camera shop.
