"A part-time crew member, who is a student at a local university, had been asked to self-quarantine upon hearing of the cases there, was today found to be positive," it said on Friday (Oct 9).
The company said the part-timer has not been to the restaurant since clocking out on Oct 5, and has since been taken to Hospital Rembau for quarantine and treatment.
