The visitor who was tested positive for Covid-19 had entered the premises on 27th February from 2pm to 2.30pm. Even though the visitor’s stay was short, people around the area are still at high risk of being exposed to the virus.

In an official statement regarding this matter, the EPF Headquarters stated that the staff member who came into contact with the visitor had been sent for testing and the rest of the staffs are currently subjected to quarantine order.

The Jalan Raja Laut branch will also go through rigorous hygiene protocols to ensure its premises is safe for the public.
