Northpoint City’s Ding Tai Fung Added To MOH’s Covid-19 Location List
That’s why although the ‘groups of 5‘ rule is observed, those feeling under the weather should decline jios to meet in person & in public.
MOH’s Covid-19 location update on Monday (27 Jul) involved more visits over the past 2 weeks to malls & a mosque in North & Central area, by Covid-19 patients during their “infectious period”.
We’ve highlighted some notable new visits added to MOH’s list, mainly focused on heartland areas:
- Queensway Shopping Centre, 15 Jul (Wed), 4.00-6.05pm
- Masjid Assyakirin, 17 Jul (Fri), 1.55-2.35pm
- Funan Mall, 21 Jul (Tues), 3.10-4.10pm
- Northpoint City
– Din Tai Fung, 24 Jul (Fri), 7.30-10.00pm
You can view the full list of over 50 places logged by MOH since 13 Jul here.
Queensway Shopping Centre & Northpoint City added to list
The visits by confirmed Covid-19 patients involve new entries mostly around central & heartland shopping districts.
Northpoint’s Ding Tai Fung restaurant – the brand’s second listing since Suntec’s outlet a week ago – was visited for 2.5 hours on Friday (24 Jul) evening.
Queensway Shopping Centre – where we have fond memories of looking for sports equipment & cheap FBTs – was logged for a late afternoon Wednesday (15 Jul) visit.
An unstated number of Covid-19 cases had visited from 4pm for a visit lasting 2 hours & 5 minutes.
Finally, Masjid Assyakirin – a heartland mosque located between Jurong West & Jurong East – was added to MOH’s list for a post-lunchtime visit on Friday (17 Jul) at 1.55pm.
Always log Phase 2 visits with SafeEntry
Most of these mall visits occurred during timings that are considered peak periods to enter shopping complexes or eateries — i.e. weekends or lunch & dinner crowds.
In general, we surmise that it would be harder to stagger our visits now that Phase 2 is in full swing.
However, we can still only head out to buy necessities & meet friends where necessary — and make it a point to stay masked up & use SafeEntry to track our visits.
Heartland locations will still be declared
FYI, MOH has been listing public areas visited by Covid-19 patients prior to Phase 2 for contact-tracing purposes.
Heartland locations where confirmed Covid-19 patients have visited for 30 min or longer will continue to be made known to the public.
For citizens who’ve visited these places at similar dates & timings, do monitor your health for the next 14 days.
Stay vigilant for respiratory symptoms
Visitors of these areas are reminded to see a doctor immediately if they develop any of these respiratory symptoms:
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
- Loss of taste/smell
Those identified as close contacts should have been informed by MOH as contact-tracing efforts continue.
Only head out for essential engagements
We wish all affected patients a swift recovery and hope that citizens adhere to social-distancing cues & mask regulations to minimise risks of transmission to our loved ones.
If you’ve visited any of these locations recently, do pay close attention to your health & well-being over the next 2 weeks.
