In the notice, the management also informed that the lady in question was there on 29th November for an hour, between 11:30am to 12:30pm. At the time, the woman did not exhibit any symptoms and her body temperature was in normal range. Although social distancing and standard SOPs were practiced at the bank, one can never be too sure when it comes to the virus transmission.


Upon receiving the notice, Maybank Taman Segar was immediately closed to make way for deep cleaning and sanitisation. Contact tracing has also been carried out to identify which employee(s) came in contact with the customer.

As usual, the public are advised to perform essential banking via Maybank2u. Those who frequent Taman Segar branch may visit other nearby outlets for the time being.
