Visitors advised to monitor health

The National Environment Agency will guide the cleaning and disinfection of the affected premises.

MOH has advised those who visited these locations at the specific timings that the patient was there to monitor their health for 14 days.

That means they should see a doctor if they have symptoms like cough, sore throat and runny nose, as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and tell the doctor that they have been at these locations.

However, there is no need to avoid these locations, as close contacts have already been informed by MOH.

Please stay safe and follow safe distancing rules when you’re out and about.
