SINGAPORE (The Straits Times/Asia News Network): A Singapore Pools branch in Toa Payoh has been temporarily closed after an employee there tested positive for Covid-19 on Friday (Sept 17).
A spokesman for the betting operator said the Block 111 Toa Payoh Lorong 1 outlet is closed until further notice, and deep cleaning has been carried out.
A notice pasted at the branch advised people to visit the outlets at Block 85 and Block 95 in Toa Payoh Lorong 4 instead.
This comes after two Livewire sports betting venues were closed after a Covid-19 patient visited them in June.
The venues - one at China Square in Chinatown and another at the Singapore Pools Building in Rochor - have since been reopened. Livewire sports betting outlets are run by Singapore Pools.
