BIG @ The Linc COVID-19 Exposure : What’s The Risk?
Anyone who frequented the butchery department at BIG @ The Linc on or before 20 January 2021, should be wary and self-quarantine if possible.
The risk will be low if both the affected employee and all customers wore face masks, and maintained physical distance.
It is critical that we wear a face mask in public at all times, as it greatly reduces the risk of infection.
COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clean the store of any infectious particles.

Here are a few simple steps to stay safe from COVID-19 :
- Avoid suspected cases or disease hotspots, like hospitals, if possible!
