Baskin Robbins Malaysia has confirmed that one of its staff at the 1 Utama outlet has tested positive for Covid-19 as of 25 October.
In a statement on their official Facebook page, Baskin Robbins says that the staff last reported for work on 22 October. Upon reporting symptoms, he was immediately discharged from work and has been quarantined ever since. He is currently being treated in a government hospital.
Baskin Robbins assures that they have taken measures in accordance with the guidelines from the Ministry of Health (MOH) to ensure that the outlet is safe to operate again soon.
- Baskin Robbins 1 Utama was immediately closed down for disinfection
- All exposed food and packaging were discarded
- All colleagues who came into close contact with the affected staff are in self-quarantine and currently being tested
- A separate new team will be deployed to the store only after testing negative for Covid-19
Baskin Robbins has also taken an extra step to issue a paid stay-at-home order for secondary contacts while they await their test results, and those with higher risk will be proactively taking a test, fully funded by the company.
“We are fully committed to protect our frontliners and customers at all costs. We believe our emphasis on the importance of team members reporting their illness and not coming to work if unwell has allowed us to stop the spread further,” they said.
“We shall continue to reinforce our stringent food safety and hygiene standards and play our part to keep our community safe.”
Meanwhile, Baskin Robbins urges those who have visited their 1 Utama outlet from 18 to 22 October to be prepared to be contacted by MOH.
