The 1 Utama Shopping Centre in Petaling Jaya today confirmed a case of Covid-19 among the staff at the Mac City Service Centre, saying the individual in question is now receiving treatment at a government hospital.
In a statement, it said the staff member had not stepped into the mall since clocking out from work on Sept 30, as his off-day was on Oct 1.
“We have traced his entry points to the mall and Mac City Service Centre and confirm that the staff’s temperature was below 37.5 Celsius,” it added.
“As of yet, we have not received any official notification from health authorities.”
It said early mitigation steps and public safety measures had been activated to limit any potential risk, while the mall’s crisis response team was working around the clock together with the management of the outlet and health authorities.
This includes the immediate closure and deep cleaning of the outlet and thorough sanitisation of the mall.
All co-workers of the affected staff meanwhile have been placed under strict quarantine, with contact tracing underway.
