So far, seven cases of COVID-19 infection have been detected in four households at 3 Teck Whye Avenue. Separately, four cases of COVID-19 infection have been detected in three households at 357 Yung An Road. Epidemiological investigations are ongoing to determine linkages and the source of transmission.

 

2.        In order to uncover community infection cases, MOH will conduct mandatory COVID-19 testing for all residents of 3 Teck Whye Avenue and 357 Yung An Road. Testing is optional for those who have tested negative for COVID-19 infection from 25 July onwards. Mandatory testing will be conducted on 30 July 2021 between 9am and 4pm at the void deck of 1 Teck Whye Avenue, and the pavilion between 357 and 359 Yung An Road, respectively. 

 

3.    All residents are to bring along their NRIC for identification purposes. Leaflets have been distributed and SMS notifications have been sent to the residents to provide them with more information. Residents are reminded to keep to their appointment time. Residents are also advised to monitor their health closely and consult a doctor immediately if they feel unwell. Those who are still awaiting their test results are advised to minimise social interactions as much as possible. They should continue to monitor their health and seek immediate medical attention if they feel unwell.
