Padini IOI Mall COVID-19 Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?
This case does not appear to pose any particular risk to Padini shoppers, as the employee last worked there 2 weeks before he/she tested positive for COVID-19.
Nevertheless, Padini will be working with the Ministry of Health to identify close contacts of their affected employee.
Those identified as close contacts will be contacted by the MOH, and asked to self-quarantine and get tested for COVID-19.
This why it is important to log your movements with MySejahtera, or the physical logbook.
While all businesses are supposed to 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 store of any infectious particles.
