KUCHING, May 4: The Union Yes Retreat and Training Centre at Siar Beach, Lundu has been closed temporarily for one week after one of its staff tested positive for Covid-19.

In a notice issued on May 2, the retreat’s chief executive officer Andrew Lo explained that as an immediate precaution, the retreat will be closed for at least one week.

“We will reopen once all relevant protocols are fully complied with. We are working closely with the Ministry of Health (MOH) and relevant agencies to comply with the relevant protocols,” he said.

“We will continue to provide updates as needed,” he added.

He also gave assurance that MOH officials are reaching out and providing assistance directly to individuals as well as customers with an elevated risk of exposure who may have been in close contact with the staff recently.

“The staff member was last on duty from April 21 to 26 and April 28 after returning from annual leave.

“Customers who had stayed at the retreat on these dates, kindly refer to MOH for guidance,” he advised.

In the meantime, Lo said the retreat will conduct thorough cleaning and sanitising of the premises.

He added that all staff will also be required to undergo Covid-19 swab tests and observe a quarantine while waiting for lab tests results.

“The wellbeing of our staff, customers and families are our priority. We have strictly complied with all SOPs (standard operating procedures) and sanitised all our rooms on a daily basis.

“Thank you for your continued support. By working together, we will get through these challenging times,” he added. — DayakDaily
