Ampang Jaya Police HQ COVID-19 Cases : What’s The Risk?

Anyone who went to the Ampang Jaya police HQ on or before 22 February 2021, should be wary and self-quarantine if possible.

The risk will be low if both the affected police officers and members of the public 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.

Let this be a reminder why it is critical that you wear a face mask in public at all times – they greatly reduce the risk of infection.

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