Bursa Malaysia : Two Employees Positive For COVID-19

On 8 January 2021, Bursa Malaysia announced that two employees tested positive for COVID-19.

Bursa Malaysia placed them under home quarantine, and have carried out contact tracing.

Staff members who have had close contact with the affected employees were sent for testing, and asked to work from home, until their test results come back negative.

Bursa Malaysia also ordered those who have had indirect contact with the affected employees to work from home as well.

The stock exchange is operating as normal, after deep cleaning and sanitisation.

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

 

Bursa Malaysia COVID-19 Cases : Official Statement

Here is the official statement by Bursa Malaysia on their COVID-19 cases.

We wish to inform that two staff members at Bursa Malaysia Berhad (“Bursa Malaysia” or the “Exchange”) have tested positive for COVID-19. The authorities at the Ministry of Health (MOH) have been contacted, and the affected staff members are currently in isolation under home quarantine.

The Exchange has carried out contact tracing and established the movements of the infected staff members. As an immediate response, Bursa Malaysia staff who have had close contact with the affected staff members will be sent for testing and work from home until their test results come back negative. As a further precaution, staff who have had indirect contact will also be working from home. Bursa Malaysia will provide the necessary support should they choose to be voluntarily tested.

To protect the health and wellbeing of our employees, deep cleansing and sanitisation work is currently being carried out. Bursa Malaysia places the utmost priority on the health and wellbeing of our employees. We will continue to exercise the necessary precautionary measures that have been in practice since the start of the pandemic.

Bursa Malaysia would like to assure that the stock exchange is operating as normal. There is no disruption to our critical and support functions of the Exchange, and our Business Continuity Management plan is in place to ensure the smooth functioning of our operations in the event of such incidents.

We will continue to monitor the developments closely and provide updates as new information becomes available.
