Find out what happened, and where you can get this COVID-19 screening at 1 Utama Shopping Centre!
1 Utama Shut Down After 4 COVID-19 Cases
Earlier this week, both Parkson Elite and Mac City in 1 Utama Shopping Centre announced that their staff members tested positive for COVID-19.
The Disaster Management Committee of the Petaling District Office just revealed that four individuals tested positive in those incidents – three staff members, and a visitor.
As a result, they ordered the closure of the 1 Utama Shopping Centre starting tomorrow, 11 October 2020, for the purpose of decontaminating the premises, as well as to perform COVID-19 screening for close contacts.
In their statement, 1 Utama Shopping Centre shared the results of COVID-19 testing at their mall :
- Mac City Service Centre staff : all tested negative
- Parkson Elite staff : close contacts tested negative
Based on the information above, we can surmise that a visitor to the Mac City Service Centre, and a second Parkson Elite employee, likely tested positive for COVID-19.
1 Utama Visitors Advised To Screen For COVID-19
The Petaling District Health Office will arrange for COVID-19 screening tests at the 1 Utama Shopping Centre, from 9 AM until 2 PM on two days :
- Wednesday, 14 October 2020
- Thursday, 15 October 2020
The COVID-19 screening tests are prioritised for those who visited these two premises at these specific dates :
- Cosmetic and Perfume Department, Level G, Parkson Elite : 30 September to 7 October 2020
- Mac City, Level 2 : 25 September to 30 September 2020
If you were in either or both of those affected premises at those dates, please head to 1 Utama Shopping Centre on those two dates to get screened.
You can also call the Petaling District Health Office at 03-7803-0106 for further information.
However, if you are symptomatic before those two screening dates, please head to the nearest hospital IMMEDIATELY for screening and treatment.
