KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 20): Bank Muamalat Malaysia Berhad (Bank Muamalat) has confirmed that four more of its employees at the Kota Kinabalu branch have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. This brings the total infections at the branch to five persons, all of whom are now under the care of a government hospital.
The Kota Kinabalu branch located at Aeropod Commercial Square, Jalan Kepayan was closed last week to enable thorough sanitisation and cleaning procedures to be carried out, after an employee tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
As a precautionary measure, all co-workers who have been in direct contact with the said employees have been asked to self-quarantine at home for the next 14 days, until given the appropriate medical clearance. Contact tracing is also underway in line with the Health Ministry’s guidelines.

These include following medical protocols from local health authorities and implementing strict guidelines in relation to social interactions, hygiene, travel and visits to Bank Muamalat.
