Contact tracing is underway

Residents who’ve visited the restaurant and locations on the list at similar timings should have been notified if they are deemed “close contacts”.

The list of public locations by MOH currently excludes the following places:

  • Residence
  • Workplaces
  • Healthcare facilities
  • Public transport

MOH has also stated that malls & supermarkets will be sanitising the premises accordingly, so there’s no need to avoid these places listed for now.

Mask up during Phase 2

However, visitors should continue to pay close attention to their health for 14 days following the stated times & visits.

Do seek immediate medical attention if you or your loved ones display these respiratory symptoms:

  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Fever
  • Loss of taste/smell

With Phase 2 & elections upon us, we must stay ever vigilant – masking up when venturing outdoors – to reduce the risks of clusters.

We wish all new patients a swift recovery and that everyone continues to adhere to social distancing cues & regulations.
