Maybank takes necessary measures after employee tests positive for Covid-19

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Maybank has assured that there will be no disruption to any of its services at Menara Maybank, Jalan Tun Perak, here, as it has taken all the necessary measures after one employee tested positive for Covid-19.

In a statement to Bernama, the bank said the employee who tested positive for the virus is currently receiving medical attention at a government hospital.

It said the employee had been under home quarantine since March 1, 2020 - the same day the bank was notified that a family member of the employee was tested for the virus, and subsequently confirmed positive.

"The home quarantine measures are in accordance with the bank’s safety and health guidelines on Covid-19", said the bank on Sunday (March 8).

As a precaution, Maybank has conducted a thorough sanitisation of the affected floors in the building and other common facilities, in accordance with safety and health guidelines.

Detailed contact tracing has also been carried out to identify and inform those who had direct contact with the employee, and they have been on home quarantine other than undergoing medical screening.

A Maybank spokesman said aside from routinely sanitising the offices, all employees dealing with customers have been provided with personal protection equipment.

Hand sanitisers are provided for staff use and daily temperature checks are also being carried out in the effort to ensure the wellbeing of staff and customers.

"We will continue to take the necessary measures as long as they are required as the safety of our customers and staff is paramount to us," it assured. - Bernama
