MOH said that people who were identified as close contacts of confirmed cases would have been notified by the ministry. 

As a precautionary measure, people who were at those locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit, the ministry added.

"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."

MOH said there is no need for people to avoid places where COVID-19 cases have been, and that the National Environment Agency will engage the management of the affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.

Singapore reported 49 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, including three in the community and three imported infections.

The ministry also announced it removed 41 COVID-19 cases from the total count after further investigations showed they were negative.
