MOH said on Monday - the first time it released such a list - that these were public places visited by COVID-19 cases for more than 30 minutes while they were infectious. 

"As a precautionary measure, persons who had been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit," MOH said. 

"They should see a doctor promptly if they develop symptoms of acute respiratory infection (such as cough, sore throat and runny nose), as well as fever and loss of taste or smell, and inform the doctor of their exposure history."

Those identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would already have been notified by MOH.
