SINGAPORE — NTUC Foodfare at 308 Anchorvale Road is closed from Sunday for two weeks and will reopen on 13 June as investigations by the Ministry of Health (MOH) show there is likely ongoing transmission of COVID-19 at the coffee shop.

“To break any potential chain of transmission and enable deep cleaning of the premises, NTUC Foodfare at 308 Anchorvale Road has been closed to all members of the public starting from 30 May 2021 and will re-open 14 days later, on 13 June 2021,” the MOH said on Sunday in its daily COVID-19 report.

To pre-emptively mitigate any potential risk of wider, undetected community transmission, the authorities will offer free COVID-19 testing for members of the public who had visited the coffee shop from 13 May to 30 May. 

All visitors to the location over the period are advised to monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit. They are encouraged to visit a Regional Screening Centre or “Swab and Send Home” Public Health Preparedness Clinic for a free COVID-19 testing.

MOH also confirmed a 95-year-old Singaporean died on Sunday from COVID-19 infection – the 33rd such fatality in Singapore.

On Sunday, MOH reported 25 new cases of COVID-19 infection in Singapore, taking the country's total case count to 62,028.

There are 19 cases of locally transmitted infection, of which 13 are linked to past cases.
