Here’s the expanded list of locations released since 14 Jun.
The list of public locations by MOH currently excludes the following places:

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.

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:

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.
