The reason for listing these places is to facillitate contact tracing efforts. You can view Annex C3 of MOH’s 4.5 page list here in full.

Stay vigilant & monitor your health closely

If you or your loved ones have been in the vicinity of these areas at the similar times, do monitor your health for 14 days from the date of visit.

Respiratory symptoms like runny nose, cough, fever should also be declared to your doctor accordingly.

As Phase 2 goes on, we should continue to stay vigilant and use SafeEntry while observing safe distancing & mask regulations where possible.
