PETALING JAYA: All 1Utama Shopping Centre staff and tenants have undergone Covid-19 tests as a precautionary measure to mitigate potential risks.
The shopping complex management confirmed that Mac City Service Centre employees had tested negative for Covid-19.
"Close contacts of the Parkson Elite employees also tested negative," it said in a statement posted on its Facebook page Saturday (Oct 10).
It said the Health Ministry had confirmed that the small number of cases in 1Utama were not linked, and not spread by one source "with the infected persons showing no symptoms during their workdays at our tenant outlets".
On the advice of the Health Ministry, the management announced that the complex would be closed on Sunday (Oct 11) for a sanitisation exercise, and to help facilitate contact tracing.
"We remain steadfast in our safety efforts, and the mall will reopen once test results are received," it said.
The management noted that despite stringent standard operating procedures and heavy sanitisation efforts, they were unable to contain the spread of the virus.
"It is beyond our control," it said.
The management expressed gratitude to frontliners, tenants, the Health Ministry, and all parties that had rendered assistance and continuous support during the challenging period.
It called upon members of the public who had visited Mac City and Parkson Elite between Sept 25 to Oct 7 to contact the Petaling district health office.
