It added that as a precautionary measure, those who had 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,” MOH said.

The ministry added there was no need to avoid places where confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been and that the National Environment Agency will engage the management of affected premises to provide guidance on cleaning and disinfection.
