The rumours that CIMB shut down their Kota Damansara branch due to COVID-19, like UOB Kepong did today are FALSE. Here are the facts…
Rumours : CIMB Kota Damansara Closed Because Of COVID-19
This rumour has been circulating on social media, particularly WhatsApp groups, claiming a large number of COVID-19 cases at UOB and CIMB :
Cimb Kota Damansara 70+ ppl
Cimb Ttdi 70+ ppl
Uob Kepong 40 + ppl

Girl friend in cimb, boyfriend in uob
Uob kepong branch Closed for 2weeks
Cimb kota Damansara closed
The rumours are FALSE. Only one COVID-19 case has been confirmed – the employee of UOB Kepong. The other five individuals are still awaiting their tests.
CIMB Kota Damansara : NOT Closed Because Of COVID-19
CIMB confirmed that their Kota Damansara branch will open as normal. They clarified that five of their Mobile Sales Force team was in close proximity with a COVID-19 positive patient – presumably the employee of UOB Kepong.
However, these five potentially exposed CIMB employees were not in contact with CIMB Kota Damansara staff branch, as they are based in separate floors.
Instead of shutting down the branch for two weeks, as UOB Kepong just did, the CIMB Kota Damansara branch will undergo sanitation and deep cleaning tonight.
It will reopen as normal on 23 September 2020.

Five staff from CIMB Mobile Sales Force (“MSF”), Kota Damansara who have been in close proximity with a confirmed COVID-19 patient are now in Sungai Buloh Hospital for COVID-19 testing.
