There are now 26 cases linked to the pre-school.Another two cases were linked to the new cluster at SingPost Centre, which was announced on Friday. This means there are five cases linked to this cluster.

In a statement on Saturday night, a SingPost spokesman said that the new cases worked on the same floor as the three previously infected employees, two of whom were full-time employees, and one of whom was a contract staff.All those in the SingPost cluster had worked at the packet-sorting facility at SingPost, which is a restricted, staff-only area that cannot be accessed by members of public, said the spokesman.

He added that staff members working at the packet-sorting facility use a separate staff entrance at the back of the SingPost building and do not pass through the SingPost Centre shopping mall when they enter or leave their workplace.Close contacts of all the confirmed cases at the SingPost cluster had been served quarantine orders, and the National Environment Agency had given SingPost the go-ahead to resume its operations on Sunday (March 29), said the spokesman.

"All affected staff are not postmen and therefore have no contact with members of public in their line of work," he added.All in, 29 of the 70 new cases announced by MOH today are local cases, with the remaining 41 imported.A total of 198 have recovered, with another 15 being discharged on Saturday. Of the 420 still in hospital, most are stable or improving, while 19 are in critical care.

The Government had announced earlier on Saturday that LTVP holders and those granted an IPA who are planning to enter or return to Singapore must obtain the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority's (ICA) permission before they start their journey to Singapore by submitting their application for entry via e-mail.

Existing student pass holders and those who have been granted IPA for a student pass must obtain the Ministry of Education's (MOE) permission before starting their journey to the Republic.MOE said it will take into consideration the course in which the student is enrolled and prioritise entry approval for those studying in publicly funded institutes of higher learning.
