THE MANAGEMENT OF JAYA GROCER
Jaya Grocer Jaya 33 COVID-19 Case : What’s The Risk?
The risk would depend on whether the affected employee wore a face mask properly, maintained physical distance from customers and co-workers, as well as good hand hygiene.
It would also depend a lot on whether customers who came into contact wore their face masks properly, and practiced good hand hygiene.
The Ministry of Health will be tracing contacts, and those identified as close contacts will be asked to self-quarantine and get tested.
Let this be a reminder why it is critical that you wear a face mask in public at all times – they greatly reduce the risk of infection.
You should also maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.
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.
