Malaysian pay TV and broadband operator ASTRO has confirmed that five employees at its sales office in KK Times Square, Kota Kinabalu has been tested positive for COVID-19. Kota Kinabalu is the capital of Malaysia’s Sabah state in the northern part of the island of Borneo.

In a statement, ASTRO said, “The employees concerned are home quarantined while waiting for medical treatment at a government hospital. Astro wishes them speedy recovery and would like to emphasise that health and safety of our employees is our biggest priority. We are working with the health authorities to get all our staff in KK to get tested as soon as possible.

“As a precautionary measure, Astro offices in KK Times Square are closed for thorough cleaning and disinfection. The Customer Service Centre will reopen on 18 Nov 2020.

An Astro spokesperson said, “We wish to emphasise that health and safety of our employees is our biggest priority. We are working with the health authorities to identify those who have come in contact with the employee concerned. Primary contacts will be tested and then home quarantined for 14 days.

“Since the beginning of the MCO (Movement Control Order) Astro has increased the frequency and intensity of cleaning at all its sites. In addition Astro has restricted staff travel, encouraged video-based meetings, suspending admission of live studio audiences in shows and communicated to employees to practice good personal hygiene at all times.

“Astro’s operations are unimpacted by this development unless informed otherwise; and has business continuity plans in place to safeguard our operations.”
