PETALING JAYA: UDA Holdings Berhad (UDA) has put in place more measures to protect its employees and visitors against the Covid-19 outbreak after one of its board members tested positive.
UDA, a property company under the Entrepreneur Development ministry, said it had taken proactive steps, including to allow employees to leave early in a bid to sanitise its headquarters at Kompleks Pertama, Kuala Lumpur.
“UDA is committed to implementing all steps in line with the recommendations by the Health Ministry to curb the outbreak, especially within our headquarters, ” the company said in a statement yesterday.
On Monday, UDA said the affected person was quarantined at a government hospital.
“Following this, UDA is now taking precautionary measures to identify individuals that had close contact with the affected individual. UDA is also working with the Health Ministry (MOH) on this matter, ” noted the company.
To further boost control of security and health, UDA has limited the flow of individuals entering and leaving its headquarters.
“UDA also will screen visitors by checking their temperature at the lobby. Visitors and staff were given face masks and hand sanitisers as a preventative measure.
“Other initiatives taken by UDA to protect the welfare of its staff and to curb any more cases included allowing all staff serving at the headquarters to work from home until further notice.”
A former minister and his deputy were recently seen in close contact with a corporate executive identified as the 26th person in Malaysia infected with the disease.
However, the Health Ministry said both men tested negative.
