Thankfully, the staff member who contracted the virus is currently receiving medical attention according to Lee. 7-Eleven Malaysia are working closely with the Health Ministry in carrying out detailed contact tracing to determine and inform others that had been in close contact with said staff member. Additionally, they are also working to locate where the worker could have contracted the virus from.

Lee added that preventive measures across all stores have been implemented that include the regular sanitisation of stores as well as “enhanced personal hygiene protocols” for staff members and social distancing measures when dealing with customers. He ended by saying 7-Eleven Malaysia’s concern for the safety and well-being of both customers and staff members alike are a top priority and will continue to monitor this situation closely while promising that “further updates will be provided as necessary,”

For now, wear your masks, keep your distance and sanitise frequently if you need to go out. source: Tenor
