In similar news, IKEA Damansara had been advised by the Ministry of Health (MoH) to close after its store co-workers and service partners had contracted Covid-19.

As someone pointed out, if you had visited those aforementioned places recently, the best course of action is to isolate yourselves at home immediately. And wait for notification to go for screening or if symptoms are showing. Even if you didn’t receive the notification or there are no symptoms showing, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
