It will be updated on a rolling 14-day basis, which covers one incubation period and as epidemiological investigations progress.
People who have been at these places during the specified timings 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.
"There is no need to avoid places where confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been. The National Environment Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection," said MOH.
Singapore reported 113 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, of which five are within the community.
One of the community cases is a Singaporean, and four are work pass holders.
