Thinking of eating out? Think again.

Just as we thought our Covid-19 cases would start dropping the moment 2020 ended, four restaurants have closed temporarily due to confirmed cases in the first week of January.

Just this week, four different restaurants have taken to their official social media platforms to announce their closure after patrons and/or staff members tested positive for COVID-19.

The restaurants in question are 山達小舖 Yamatatsu at Old Klang Road, Mei by Fat Spoon at SS2, 鼎泰丰 Din Tai Fung at The Gardens/Mid Valley outlet, and The Manhattan FISH MARKET at Melawati Mall.

While The Manhattan FISH MARKET posted their announcement on 6 January, the other three restaurants (山達小舖 Yamatatsu, Mei by Fat Spoon, and 鼎泰丰 Din Tai Fung) made their respective announcements last night (7 January), at around the same time.

For many of these restaurants, the confirmed cases were recorded by a staff/team member, with the exception of Mei by Fat Spoon who were notified by two separate patrons that they have now tested positive for COVID-19.

We are sad to announce that we have a confirmed Covid-19 positive case involving our Melawati Mall outlet crew member….

All restaurants have since quarantined and tested all staff members and thoroughly sanitised their outlets along with closing down temporarily as per the Ministry of Health’s guidelines.

If you’ve visited any of these restaurants in the last few weeks, make sure to get yourself tested and self-quarantine to be safe!

So, the next time your friends ask you to lepak outside for lunch or dinner, think twice about the risk you’re putting yourself through.

The fight against the pandemic hasn’t been an easy one, and as we slowly enter 2021, it seems like it isn’t getting any better. It’s our duty to stay safe and stay home to stop the spread as best as we can.
