Machines Mid Valley : One Employee Positive For COVID-19

At around 3:30 PM today (12 October 2020), Machines announced the immediate closure of their Mid Valley retail store, after an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The employee, who last worked at the Mid Valley outlet on 8 October 2020, informed Machines about COVID-19 positive cases in the flats where he lived on 10 October 2020.

They made arrangements for his self-quarantine and COVID-19 screening test, which came back positive today, Monday, 12 October 2020.


Machines Mid Valley : Closed After COVID-19 Exposure!

Machines immediately close their Mid Valley outlet for disinfection and cleaning, and it will remain closed until further notice.

They are now working with the Ministry of Health (MOH) to identify close contacts for COVID-19 testing and quarantine.

This incident only affects their Mid Valley outlet (G-063, Ground Floor), and does not involve their outlet in the adjoining Gardens Mall.


Machines Mid Valley COVID-19 : Should You Be Concerned?

These shopping mall infections reinforce the importance of contact tracing, and the MySejahtera app which logs the movements of its users.

While shopping malls and all other public premises offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use MySejahtera, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.

Using MySejahtera also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.

If you happen to be in close contact with this Machines employee at their Mid Valley outlet, you will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine and undergo a COVID-19 screening test.

COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so the deep cleaning operation will definitely clean the branch of any infectious particles.

More importantly, face masks greatly reduce the risk of infection. That’s why it is critical for everyone to wear a face mask in public.
