BIG @ Plaza Batai COVID-19 Exposure : What’s The Risk?
The Malaysia Ministry of Health will be conducting close contact tracing.
If you frequented BIG Plaza Batai on or before 21 July 2021, you should self-quarantine and wait to see if you have been identified as a close contact. You may then be required to get tested.
The risk will be low if both the affected employee 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.
COVID-19 : How To Keep Safe!
Here are a few simple steps to stay safe from COVID-19 :
- Avoid suspected cases or disease hotspots, like hospitals, if possible!
- Avoid public events and crowds
- Keep our hands clean with soap or hand sanitiser
- If you need to wear a surgical mask, make sure you put it on and remove it properly!
