People who had been at these locations during the specified timings should monitor their health closely for 14 days from their date of visit as a precautionary measure.

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.
