SINGAPORE: Cleaning and disinfection at HomeTeamNS Khatib has been stepped up after two individuals who tested positive for COVID-19 visited the newly opened clubhouse, HomeTeamNS told CNA on Thursday (Aug 13).

On Wednesday, HomeTeamNS Khatib was among the new locations added to the Health Ministry's (MOH) list of public places visited by COVID-19 community cases during their infectious period.

The two COVID-19 cases who visited HomeTeamNS Khatib, located at 2 Yishun Walk, did so on five occasions over four days between Jul 31 and Aug 3.

The visitors, who are currently in hospital, were asymptomatic at the time of their visit, HomeTeamNS said.

Affected outlets and all common areas at the HomeTeamNS Khatib clubhouse were thoroughly disinfected on Wednesday by a National Environment Agency-appointed cleaning agency, said HomeTeamNS.

"The clubhouse has also stepped up its cleaning and disinfection at all common and high touch areas."

HomeTeamNS Khatib opened to the public on Aug 1, and is the newest of six HomeTeamNS clubhouses catering to operationally ready national servicemen (NSmen) from the Singapore Police Force and the Singapore Civil Defence Force.

It spans 1.5 hectares and is designed to serve 85,000 members.
