On 14 October, Tesco Mutiara Damansara reported that an intern tested positive for COVID-19. They deep cleaned the store overnight and reopened normally the next day.

They identified 53 close contacts of the intern amongst their employees, who were immediately home quarantined from 14 October onwards and subsequently tested for COVID-19.

Tesco Mutiara Damansara : Closed For COVID-19 Screening + Cleaning

As a result of the seven new COVID-19 cases, the Tesco Mutiara Damansara management will close the entire store on 24 October 2020 until further notice.

They will then conduct COVID-19 screening tests on all of their employees and tenants – some 500 of them. They will only be allowed to return to work, after testing negative.

They will also sanitise and deep-clean Tesco Mutiara Damansara on the night of 25 October 2020.

Tesco Online orders will be fulfilled by other Tesco stores.

Tesco Mutiara Damansara COVID-19 Cases : Should You Be Concerned?

If you happen to be in close contact with the Tesco Mutiara Damansara employees who tested positive, you will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine and undergo a COVID-19 screening test.

These shopping mall 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 MySejahtera, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.

Using MySejahtera also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.

COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so the deep cleaning operation will definitely clean the branch of any infectious particles.

More importantly, face masks greatly reduce the risk of infection. That’s why it is critical for everyone to wear a face mask in public.
