Of the 1,959 who are still in Singapore, 1,697 have been contacted and are being quarantined or isolated. Efforts are ongoing to contact the remaining 262 close contacts. Singapore's Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (Dorscon) moved from Yellow to Orange on Feb 7 after the first local cases with no known link to previous cases were announced. Dorscon Orange means the disease is severe and spreads easily between people, but it has not spread widely in Singapore and is being contained. Dorscon Red is for when the disease is severe and spreading widely. Dorscon Green means there are just minor problems. Yellow refers either to a mild infection, or a severe infection that is not spreading here, but about which the community needs to be careful. The Grace Assembly of God church has the largest cluster here currently, with 16 confirmed cases. Apart from the church, the other clusters that have been identified so far are the Life Church and Missions Singapore, the Yong Thai Hang health products shop, the Grand Hyatt Singapore and a Seletar Aerospace Heights construction site.
