KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 26): Genting Malaysia’s Bhd Resorts World Genting (RWG) has confirmed that one of its employees under the security department tested positive for Covid-19, according to a notice on its website.

RWG noted that the employee was based at the warehouse loading bay and did not interact with any of the guests, adding that the employee’s movements were restricted and traceable.

RWG said the affected employee is currently receiving medical attention at a government hospital, while the Ministry of Health (MoH) had been immediately notified and is conducting detailed contact tracing.

Meanwhile, employees who had close contact with the affected individual are currently being isolated and screened.

“We have conducted thorough sanitisation and disinfection of all the affected areas in accordance with the MoH’s guidelines,” said RWG.

“We will continue to take the necessary precautionary measures as the health and safety of all our guests and employees have always been our utmost priority,” RWG added.

The hilltop casino, which was shut for three months from March 18 due to the movement control order (MCO), resumed operations from June 19.
