Village Grocer 1 Mont Kiara : Still Closed After COVID-19 Cases!

On 6 January 2021, Village Grocer announced that an employee at their 1 Mont Kiara store just tested positive for COVID-19.

On 7 January 2021, Village Grocer announced that a second employee at the same store also tested positive for COVID-19.

In both cases, Village Grocer did not close their 1 Mont Kiara outlet, and only tested close contacts of their affected employees.

On 10 January 2021, Village Grocer announced that they would close their 1 Mont Kiara store for another round of deep cleaning. They would also send all of their staff members for COVID-19 swab tests.

On 12 January 2021, Village Grocer announced that their 1 Mont Kiara store will remain closed until Wednesday, 13 January 2021 when they bring in a fresh team.

Notably, while they explain that a group of staff tested negative, they did not state that all of their 1 Mont Kiara staff tested negative. Perhaps that’s why all of them are still under quarantine.

This is the second Village Grocer affected by COVID-19 this year, following their store in Sunsuria Forum on 2 January 2021.

Village Grocer 1 Mont Kiara COVID-19 Cases : What’s The Risk?

The risk will be low if both the affected employees and all customers wore face masks, and maintained physical distance.

The Ministry of Health will be conducting contact tracing for all positive cases, and those identified as close contacts will be asked to self-quarantine and get tested.

This case reinforces the importance of contact tracing, as well as the MySejahtera mobile app which logs the movements of its users.

While shopping malls and all other public premises offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use MySejahtera, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.

Using MySejahtera also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.

COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clean the store of any infectious particles.

However, it is critical that you wear a face mask in public at all times, as they greatly reduce the risk of infection.

You should also maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.
