Two new active Covid-19 clusters were announced by the Ministry of Health (MOH) last night, leading to the closure of three places to the public - Jurong Fishery Port, Hong Lim Market & Food Centre and Khoi Grill & Hotpot in Jalan Besar.
Both clusters were linked to seven cases each. The first cluster is linked to the port and the market, and the other the restaurant.
In a statement, MOH said it is investigating cases of infection among individuals who worked at or visited Hong Lim Market & Food Centre at 531A Upper Cross Street and Jurong Fishery Port.
Both locations will be closed to the public to break the chain of transmission and enable deep cleaning of the premises from today to July 31, said MOH.
In addition, mandatory Covid-19 testing will be conducted for all who visited Jurong Fishery Port between July 3 and yesterday.
MOH said it will also extend free testing to members of the public who visited Hong Lim Market & Food Centre between July 2 and yesterday.
