REMINDER TO ALL MBAM MEMBERS ON THE CURRENT COVID-19 SITUATION
In light of the current Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic situation, MBAM would like to urge and remind all MBAM members (including but not limited to your subcontractors and suppliers) to take few of the following preventive measures:
- If you or your employee (including your foreign workers) are experiencing related symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty in breathing, or came across any close contact with infected patient, or have been to affected countries, we highly recommend that you do seek for medical consultation or practice self-quarantine.
- If you or your employee (including your foreign workers) have participated in mass gatherings such as the Sri Petaling Tabligh Gathering on 28th February – 3rd March 2020, please identify them and immediately contact the National Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) or the District Health Office near you, as per circulated by the Malaysian Ministry of Health (MOH). Please refer to MOH’s website at http://www.moh.gov.my/ for more information.
- Practice good hygiene at all times especially on construction sites. Employers are suggested to provide hand sanitizer and face masks to workers. Regular temperature check before work is highly recommended.
We need to do our part to protect our industry and country. Members are advised to follow the latest developments related to COVID-19 while adhere to the latest guidance of Government and public health officials from time to time. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event and we appreciate the healthcare workers, local communities, and Government who are on the front line working to contain this coronavirus.
