No need to avoid places

MOH will have already notified and quarantined close contacts of the community cases.

Regardless, if you’ve visited these places at the same timings, you’re advised to monitor your health for 14 days from the date of visit.

You should see a doctor as soon as you experience symptoms of acute respiratory infection, and tell them about your exposure history.

Doing this will help authorities and also keep the community safe.

There’s no need to avoid the locations as the management will have been advised on cleaning and disinfecting procedures.
