The management in a Facebook posting today said that those who had tested positive last reported for duty on Jan 23.

“We will continue to seek the advice from the authorities and will act on their advice.

“We have and will continue to carry out all necessary safety measures including replacement of service partners’ workers, contact tracing, swab tests, quarantine for all close contacts and sanitisation.

“Customers who have further inquiries or need more information, please call MoH’s Crisis Preparedness and Response Center’s (CPRC) hotline: 03-8881 0200/0600/0700,” the statement read.
