All imported cases had been placed on Stay-Home Notice upon arrival in Singapore, and were tested during their stay.

13 New Covid-19 Cases On 6 Mar Include 1 Community Infection In S’pore
Among the 12 imported cases are:
They had all already been placed on SHN upon arrival in Singapore and were tested during their stay.
According to MOH, yesterday’s sole community case is a female Indonesian, who works as a domestic helper after arriving in Singapore on 20 Jan.
She had served SHN and her swab test on 2 Feb was negative.
Later on 4 Mar, as she was preparing for her return to Indonesia, she was detected during a Covid-19 pre-departure test.
After her test results came back positive, she was immediately sent to the National Centre for Infectious Diseases. All of her close contacts are now under quarantine.
As the Indonesian national’s serology test was positive, this means that it is very likely a past infection.
However, authorities couldn’t confirm the exact date of her infection yet.
Covid-19 continues to be a threat in Singapore society, and it is particularly concerning when a case emerges in the community.
This highlights the importance to remain vigilant as we continue to battle the pandemic in Phase 3.
Even if vaccines underway, we shouldn’t take things for granted. Remain socially responsible, wear your mask properly, and keep a safe distance from others when you’re out.
