Proton announced that one of its employees was tested positive for Covid-19 on 14th October 2020.
The employee who is from the Research & Development Department in Shah Alam, was immediately put under the care of a government facility.
The company which has been strictly adhering to the protocols issued by the authorities, immediately put into place its mitigation plans to ensure prevention of further spread.
Contact tracing was begun and all employees from the respective departments have been asked to stay away from the office and self-quarantine.
This is being followed by deep cleansing and a disinfection of the premises and any suspected areas. As this employee was not in any way customer facing, there is less concern about direct exposure to clients.
The company reassured all its customers that it will continue to strictly follow all guidelines and procedures laid out by the authorities as it has been doing from the start of the pandemic.
PROTON said that it will continue to monitor the situation closely before deciding on any further course of action if necessary.
