5 community cases are unlinked

Of the 6 community cases found today, 5 of them are currently unlinked.

3 of them were found as part of routine testing on those who work in the construction, marine and process sectors. They don’t live in dormitories, hence are community cases.

Case 56,184, a 61-year-old Singaporean male, had been to a doctor because he felt symptoms of acute respiratory illness.

This is the list of all the community cases today.

No need to avoid locations

MOH will have notified close contacts of the cases, so if you weren’t contacted, you’re at relatively less risk.

As a precaution, however, you’re advised to monitor your health for 14 days from the date of visit.

See a doctor if you feel unwell, and let them know about your exposure history.

As always, there is no need to avoid the locations in the list, as they’ll have been cleaned and disinfected by management.
