7 Eleven @ M City Ampang COVID Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?
If you were at the 7 Eleven outlet at M City Ampang on 30 October 2020, or before, you could be in close contact with the affected staff member.
Your risk though depends on whether you wore a face mask and maintain good hand hygiene.
7 Eleven outlets are generally quite high-traffic in nature, so it will take some time to trace those who were in close contact with the affected staff.
This infection reinforces the importance of contact tracing, and the MySejahtera mobile app which logs the movements of its users.
While public premises offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use the MySejahtera mobile app, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.
Using the MySejahtera mobile app also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus is easily destroyed by soap, so the deep cleaning operation will definitely clean the outlet of any infectious particles.
But most important of all – we need to remember to always wear a face mask in public. Face masks have been proven to prevent the spread and reduce the risk of being infected.
