SINGAPORE, June 19 (The Straits Times/ANN): The Singapore Sports Hub announced on Saturday that the majority of its facilities will reopen to the public next Monday as Singapore enters phase three (heightened alert).

Since the start of the transition into phase three (heightened alert) started on June 14, Singapore Sports Hub has been gradually reopening many of its facilities and locations such as the OCBC Arena, Water Sports Centre and the Singapore Sports Museum.

From next Monday, along with the reopening of facilities like the Sports Hub Gym, the maximum group size for activities has been reinstated to five and regular programmes at the OCBC Arena, Sports Hub Fitness Studio and Water Sports Centres will restart.

Patrons should continue to observe safe social distancing and practise good personal hygiene.

They should refrain from visiting the hub if they are serving a quarantine order, leave of absence, self-isolation or stay-home notice.

Members of the public will not be allowed access into the hub should they show any respiratory symptoms or register a temperature of 38 deg C or more.

From June 22-27, the OCBC Aquatic Centre will host the Singapore National Swimming Championships. That venue will be available for public use from June 28.

Venues such as Lazy River and Kids Water Playground will stay closed due to government regulations, the Singapore Sports Hub said.

There were 21 confirmed cases of the coronavirus as at Saturday noon (June 19), taking Singapore's total to 62,403, said the Ministry of Health (MOH).

Of these cases, 14 were in the community and seven were imported.

The 14 community cases include four unlinked ones. The remaining 10 are linked to previous cases.

Of the linked cases, seven had already been quarantined, while the other three were detected through surveillance.

All imported cases were returning Singaporeans or permanent residents.

No new cases were reported in workers' dormitories. - The Straits Times/ANN
