Find out what happened, and if you need to be concerned about this new development!


TGI Fridays Queensbay : Closed After COVID-19 Exposure!

On 27 October 2020, Malaysia Ministry of Health officers shut down TGI Fridays at Queensbay Mall in Penang, after a customer tested positive for COVID-19.

The affected customer was part of a group who visited this TGI Fridays Queensbay Mall outlet, allegedly at 8 PM on Saturday, 24 October 2020.

After this customer tested positive for COVID-19, health officers visited TGI Fridays at Queensbay Mall on the morning of 27 October 2020 and ordered it closed from 12:30 PM until further notice.

Their 11 employees were also asked to self-quarantine and get tested for COVID-19.


TGI Fridays Queensbay COVID-19 Case : Should You Be Concerned?

As per MOH guidelines, TGI Fridays will be performing contact tracing, and contacting those who were at their Queensbay Mall outlet at the same time as the affected customer.

If you happened to be in close contact with the customer, 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.
