The new locations are as follows:
Those identified as close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases would have been notified by MOH, said the ministry.
It added that people who have been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit.
"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," said MOH.
"There is no need to avoid places where confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been."
The National Environment Agency will also engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.
Singapore reported 347 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, as well as its 27th death linked to the disease - a 62-year-old man also known as Case 17168.
Seven of the new cases were community infections - one Singaporean, three work pass holders and three work permit holders.
There were also two imported cases who had been placed on stay-home notice upon arrival in Singapore.
The remaining cases are work permit holders residing in foreign worker dormitories.
