Maybank Alor Setar Main : COVID-19 Infection?

The Maybank Alor Setar Main headquarters at Jalan Sehala was shut down today (7 January 2021), after their employee was confirmed to be in close contact with a COVID-19 patient under investigation!

Maybank shared that the employee was in close contact with a COVID-19 patient under investigation (PUI), outside of the branch itself.

As a precautionary measure, Maybank closed the Alor Setar Main branch, excluding its self-service terminals, for cleaning and sanitisation, until further notice.

Maybank Alor Setar Main COVID-19 Infection : Do NOT Panic

Even though it is possible that one of the branch employees was infected, you should not panic…

They are definitely tracing contacts, which is why it is important to log your movements with MySejahtera, or the physical logbook.

While banks 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.

If you happen to be in that Maybank branch when that affected employee was present, you will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine and undergo a COVID-19 screening test.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is easily destroyed by soap, so the deep cleaning operation will definitely clean the branch 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.

You should also keep physically distanced from other people, and maintain good hand hygiene.
