Baker’s Cottage Desa Pandan : One Employee Positive For COVID-19

On 23 October 2020, Baker’s Cottage announced that an employee at their Desa Pandan branch tested positive for COVID-19.

That employee was last at work on 17 October 2020, but only took her COVID-19 test on 22 October 2020. Her results came back positive on 23 October 2020.

The Management of Baker’s Cottage immediately decided to shut down their Desa Pandan branch for a deep cleaning and sanitisation today, 24 October 2020.

Baker’s Cottage Desa Pandan will remain closed until further notice. Their other branches will be open for business as usual.


Baker’s Cottage COVID-19 Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?

As per MOH guidelines, they will be performing contact tracing, and contacting those who came in close contact with the affected employees.

If you happened to be in close contact with the employee, you will be contacted and asked to undergo a screening test.

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.
