On 11 October 2020, the Petaling District Disaster Management Committee (JPBD) announced that the shopping centre will be closed for 14 days starting 11 October.

To cope with this, the mall alongside MOH became the only shopping centre to initiate and conduct mass Covid-19 testing for all their mall and tenant staffs.

They also reassured that they have taken this closure period to thoroughly deep clean and sanitize the entire mall again with hospital-grade disinfectants. “Don’t give up… we will sail through this together. You’ve got this!”, they said in the statement.

If you’ve come in close contact with anyone suspected, immediately isolate yourself and inform the authorities. It’s up to us to combat the third wave of the Covid-19 infection.
