Giant Subang Jaya : Multiple Employees Positive For COVID-19!
On 13 January 2021, Giant announced that “a number” of employees at their Subang Jaya store just tested positive for COVID-19.
They did not reveal how many staff members were infected, and where they worked in the store, and when they were last at work.
Instead, Giant only said that they closed their Subang Jaya store for 24 hours, for deep cleaning and sanitisation.
Giant Subang Jaya COVID-19 Cases : Official Statement
Here is the official statement by Giant on the the COVID-19 cases at their Subang Jaya store.
Giant Subang Jaya COVID-19 Cases : What’s The Risk?
The risk very much depends on how many employees were affected, where they worked, and whether the affected employees and all customers wore face masks, and maintained physical distance.
The Ministry of Health will be conducting contact tracing for all positive cases, and those identified as close contacts will be asked to self-quarantine and get tested.
This case reinforces the importance of contact tracing, as well as the MySejahtera mobile app which logs the movements of its users.
While shopping malls and all other public premises offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use MySejahtera, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.
Using MySejahtera also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.
COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clean the store of any infectious particles, albeit only temporarily.
However, it is critical that you wear a face mask in public at all times, as they greatly reduce the risk of infection.
You should also maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.
