We were on a brief respite from double-digit community cases and today, that streak has come to an end.
At 12 noon, the Ministry of Health (MOH) preliminarily reports 215 new Covid-19 cases.
Foreign workers residing in dormitories make up a vast majority of the cases.
There are 4 imported cases and 10 cases in the community, comprising of 6 Singaporeans/PRs and 4 work pass holders.
The four imported cases have been placed on Stay-Home-Notice or isolated since they’ve arrived in Singapore.
This brings the total number of Covid-19 cases in Singapore to 44,122.
Community Cases On 30 Jun
On 30 Jun, in the afternoon press release, MOH reports 6 community cases.
The number has been revised to five as 1 has been reclassified as an imported case.
The Singapore Resident had just returned to Singapore on 24 Jun 2020 and has been on Stay-Home-Notice (SHN) until she tested positive for Covid-19.
Of the remaining 5 community cases, 2 are Singaporeans/PRs while 3 are work permit holders.
One of the Singaporean/PR cases, case 43712, was detected through MOH’s proactive screening of people who are deployed to frontline Covid-19 operations.

In Other News: Arcades & Billiard Saloons Can Reopen This Sat (4 July) Subject to Safe Management Measures
Several public entertainment venues will be allowed to reopen on Saturday (4 July), announced the Singapore police in an advisory on Tuesday (30 June).
Subject to the implementation of Safe Management Measures (SMMs), these five venues will be allowed to resume operations:
- Amusement centres
- Computer games centres
- Billiard saloons
- Paintball games centres
- Axe-throwing centre
Amusement centres likely include bowling alleys and ice skating rinks.
And if you’re wondering what the heck an axe-throwing centre is, well, it’s exactly as the name suggests: you go there to throw axes.
Some do it for fun, others do it to release stress. Either way, if you’ve been dying to throw an axe during the circuit breaker, you’ll soon be able to.
If you own such an establishment and you’re rubbing your hands together in anticipation, you should remember to take safe distancing rules seriously because operators who do not comply with requirements face harsh punishment.
First-time offenders may face a fine not exceeding S$10,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months, or both.
