Komugi just shut down their 1 Utama outlet, after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19!
Komugi @ 1 Utama : Staff Positive For COVID-19!
On 4 November 2020, Komugi announced that a staff member at their 1 Utama outlet tested positive for COVID-19.
The affected staff member was last at work on 2 November 2020, when she developed symptoms. She was “immediately discharged from work” on the same day and sent for treatment.
Her test results apparently came back positive today, on 4 November 2020.
Upon being informed of the test results today, they initiated these steps :
- immediately closed Komugi 1 Utama for deep cleaning, thorough disinfection as well as sanitisation.
- notified the 1 Utama Shopping Mall management.
- discarded all exposed food and packaging.
- started contact tracing to identify other team members and business associates who were in close contact as well as secondary contact with the affected team member – they will be asked to be self-quarantined and conduct the necessary tests.
- they will send all Komugi 1 Utama team members for a PCR test on 4 November at the designated government hospital.
• A separate new team will be deployed to the store after tested negative (PCR).
Komugi 1 Utama will be closed until further notice, with a separate new team deployed after testing negative on their PCR tests.
Komugi @ 1 Utama : Statement On COVID-19 Case
Here is the official announcement by Komugi on the COVID-19 case at their 1 Utama outlet :
Komugi @ 1 Utama COVID Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?
If you visited Komugi 1 Utama on 1 November and 2 November, you may be contacted by the Malaysia Ministry of Health if you are identified as a close contact.
You will then be asked to immediately self-quarantine and get yourself tested for COVID-19.
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.
