The Ministry of Health (MOH) is investigating 3 cases (Cases 64112, 64114 and 64135) of Covid-19 infection amongst individuals who work in ION Orchard.
To break any potential chain of transmission and enable deep cleaning of the premises, ION Orchard will be closed to all members of the public starting from June 12 and re-open 4 days later, on June 16.
In order to disrupt any wider, undetected community transmission, MOH will conduct special testing operations for staff who have been working in ION Orchard shopping mall from May 28.
MOH will also extend free Covid-19 testing to members of the public who had visited the retail shops or used the services/ facilities at ION Orchard between June 3 to 11.
Individuals who had only walked through the mall to connect to neighbouring buildings or Orchard MRT station need not be tested.
Please refer here for details on the testing operations.
All visitors to ION Orchard between June 3 and 11 are advised to monitor their health closely, and minimise social interactions as far as possible, for 14 days from their date of visit.
They are encouraged to see a doctor immediately if they feel unwell.
