On 27 October 2020, MBSJ announced the closure of their HQ, after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The affected employee worked at their Corporate Office, and was confirmed positive last night, 26 October 2020, and taken immediately to the Sungai Buloh Hospital.

They immediately closed the MBSJ HQ at USJ 5, Subang Jaya for disinfection, and asked the public to use their online portal today.

They also announced that they will reopen the MBSJ HQ tomorrow, on Wednesday, 28 October 2020.

MBSJ HQ COVID-19 Case : Should You Be Concerned?

As the affected employee worked at their corporate office, the risk to the public is relatively low. However, it is possible that other MBSJ employees, including those facing customers, may be infected.

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

If you happened to be in close contact with the employee, you will be contacted and asked to undergo a screening test and self-quarantine.

This case 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.

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 :

  • 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
