Maybank Pandan Jaya : COVID-19 Infection?

The Maybank branch at Pandan Jaya was shut down today (10 November 2020), after “potential exposure” to COVID-19.

An employee was confirmed to be in close contact with a COVID-19 patient under investigation (PUI), outside of Maybank Pandan Jaya.

This is the second Maybank branch to close down because of COVID-19 exposure today, after Maybank Melaka Main.

Maybank announced that they are closing this Pandan Jaya branch with immediate effect for deep cleaning and sanitisation.

The branch, excluding its self-service terminals, will close indefinitely, until all employees have been tested and found to be negative for COVID-19.

They asked that those who need to perform important banking tasks are requested to head to these alternative Maybank branches :

  • Maybank Pandan Indah
  • Maybank Taman Putra

Maybank Pandan Jaya 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 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.

 

COVID-19 : How To Keep Safe!

Here are a few simple steps to stay safe from COVID-19 :

  • Avoid suspected cases or disease hotpots, like hospitals, if possible!
  • Avoid public events and crowds
  • Keep our hands clean with soap or hand sanitiser
  • Keep our home, office, vehicles, etc. clean
  • If you need to wear a surgical mask, make sure you put it on and remove it properly!
  • Wash your food with water (and soap) after purchase and before preparation
