BIG @ Plaza Batai COVID-19 Exposure : What’s The Risk?

Anyone who frequented the BIG Plaza Batai, and talked to, or interacted with the cleaners there, on or before 16 January 2021, should self-quarantine and get tested for COVID-19.

The risk will be low if both the affected cleaner and all customers wore face masks, and maintained physical distance.

COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clean the store of any infectious particles, albeit temporarily.

It is critical that we wear a face mask in public at all times, as it greatly reduces the risk of infection.

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