FamilyMart KLIA2 : Reopened With Limited Hours

On 30 October 2020, FamilyMart KLIA2 announced that they just reopened their KLIA2 outlet.

With a fresh new team in place, their KLIA2 outlet will now be opened for limited hours, from 11 AM until 7 PM.


FamilyMart KLIA2 : One Employee Positive For COVID-19

On 25 October 2020, FamilyMart announced that an employee at their KLIA2 outlet tested positive for COVID-19.

That employee was last at work on 22 October 2020, but only tested positive today, 25 October 2020.

FamilyMart immediately shut down their KLIA2 outlet for a deep cleaning and sanitisation today, 25 October 2020.

It will remain closed until further notice, while the remaining staff undergo screening and self-quarantine.

This outlet is located in a high-traffic area, right next to the Arrivals Pick-Up point.

It is also the second KLIA2 outlet to shut down because of COVID-19, after Jaya Grocer KLIA2 shut down on 20 October 2020.


FamilyMart KLIA2 COVID-19 Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?

As per MOH guidelines, they will be performing contact tracing, and contacting those who came in close contact with the affected employees.

If you happened to be in close contact with the employee, you will be contacted and asked to undergo a screening test.

This infection reinforces the importance of contact tracing, and the MySejahtera mobile app which logs the movements of its users.

While public premises offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use the MySejahtera mobile app, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.

Using the MySejahtera mobile app also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is easily destroyed by soap, so the deep cleaning operation will definitely clean the outlet of any infectious particles.

But most important of all – we need to remember to always wear a face mask in public. Face masks have been proven to prevent the spread and reduce the risk of being infected.
