UNIQLO Empire Subang : Staff Positive For COVID-19!
On 20 November 2020, UNIQLO announced that one of their staff members at their Empire Subang store tested positive for COVID-19.
They then shut down UNIQLO Empire Subang, until further notice, for deep cleaning as advised by MOH.
This is the second UNIQLO store to shut down for COVID-19 exposure, after their Fahrenheit 88 store closed last week.
Here was their official statement on their COVID-19 exposure :
Dear Valued Customer,
A team member from The UNIQLO Empire Subang Gallery store has been confirmed COVID-19 positive today Nov 20, 2020, and we will therefore temporarily close this store until further notice for professional deep cleaning as guided by the Government and public health officials.
The health and safety of our employees and customers is our top priority. We will continue to work closely with public health authorities to ensure we are taking the right precautions and we have implemented a series of preventive health measures at all of our stores in Malaysia which you can find out more about at
We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we truly appreciate your understanding during this challenging time.

UNIQLO Empire Subang COVID-19 Exposure : Should You Be Concerned?
Needless to say, UNIQLO will be working with the Ministry of Health to identify close contacts of their affected staff member.
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.
