Village Grocer Citta Mall COVID-19 Cases : What’s The Risk?

Anyone who shopped at Village Grocer Citta Mall on or before 20 January 2021, should be wary and self-quarantine if possible.

The risk will be low if both the affected employees and all customers wore face masks, and maintained physical distance.

The Ministry of Health will be conducting contact tracing for all positive cases, and those identified as close contacts will be asked to self-quarantine and get tested.

Let this be a reminder why it is critical that you wear a face mask in public at all times – they greatly reduce the risk of infection.

You should also maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.

COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clean the store of any infectious particles, albeit only temporarily.
