Jaya Grocer KLIA2 : 3rd Outlet Closed After COVID-19 Cases!

Jaya Grocer just closed their KLIA2 outlet after two security guards there tested positive for COVID-19.

This is their third outlet to close because of COVID-19, after Mutiara Tropicana and 1 Utama.


Jaya Grocer KLIA2 : Two Guards Positive For COVID-19

On 20 October 2020, Jaya Grocer announced that two security guards at their KLIA2 outlet tested positive for COVID-19.

This would be the third COVID-19 incident involving Jaya Grocer, after their security guard at Jaya Grocer 1 Utama, and a staff member at Jaya Grocer Mutiara Tropicana, tested positive.

These two security guards were tested positive after Jaya Grocer decided to test their “outsourced staff” at their Klang Valley outlets.

They did not reveal when these two guards last worked at their KLIA2 outlet, only that the security guards at their other outlets tested negative.

The Jaya Grocer KLIA2 outlet was immediately closed on 20 October 2020, until further notice, for a deep cleaning exercise, in accordance with MOH guidelines.

They will also send their staff members at the KLIA2 outlet for a COVID-19 swab test today.


Jaya Grocer COVID-19 Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?

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

If you happened to be in close contact with the affected Jaya Grocer security guards, you will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine as well as undergo a screening test.

These shopping-related infections reinforce the importance of contact tracing, and 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 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.


Jaya Grocer KLIA2 : Official Statement

This was the official statement posted by Jaya Grocer on 20 October 2020 :

Dear Valued Customers,

Since last week, we have taken the initiative to test every single outsourced staff member at all Jaya Grocer outlets in the Klang Valley. Regrettably, two outsourced security guards at Jaya Grocer KLIA2 have tested positive for COVID-19. In light of this, Jaya Grocer KLIA2 will be closed from today, 20th October 2020, until further notice. All staff from this outlet will undergo the swab test today.

All other outsourced security personnel at all of our Jaya Grocer outlets have tested negative for COVID-19. We will be temporarily replacing all outsourced security guards with our local staff.

We have already started cleansing and sanitising Jaya Grocer KLIA2 in accordance with the guidelines set by the MoH.

The safety of our customers and staff remains our utmost priority. Thank you for your continuous support. Please stay safe and healthy.

The management of Jaya Grocer
