1 Utama has confirmed that a staff from one of their outlets has tested positive for Covid-19.
In a Facebook post on 5 October, the individual involved is an outlet staff at Mac City Service Centre (Lot S330, 2nd Floor 1 Utama).
“After investigation, the said staff has not stepped into our mall premise since clocking out from work on 30th September, with his off day on 1st October,” they wrote.
“We have traced his entry points to the mall and Mac City Service Centre and confirm that the staff’s temperature was below 37.5 Celsius. He is now under the care of a government hospital. As of yet, we have not received any official notification from Health Authorities.”
1 Utama adds that this is the first-ever isolated case to happen in 1 Utama since the Covid-19 outbreak in Malaysia this year and have expressed that they are “quite devastated” to receive this news despite their best efforts to keep the virus away.
However, they said that after months of preparation, they are now in “a good position to respond to this emergency.”
“With full transparency, we regard this as our top priority to provide timely accurate information to you the public, our shoppers, tenants and vendors through this advisory,” they wrote.
“In light of this development, early mitigation steps and public safety measures have been swiftly activated to limit any potential risk as soon as we were informed of the situation.”
“Our 1 Utama Crisis Response Team is now working round the clock together with the management of Mac City Service Centre and Health Authorities to undertake all necessary actions to safeguard our mall.”
1 Utama ends their post by urging everyone to “stay calm and adhere to the routine SOP’s that everyone should take in 1 Utama i.e. wearing a face mask, temperature screening, practising good hygiene and social distancing.”
“Public health safety is a collective responsibility and we will need our tenants and shoppers to continue taking good care of your well-being to keep our mall safe.”
They also added that the rumours they clarified last week are not related to this case.
