KUALA LUMPUR, 18 April 2021: The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) is temporarily closing its Kangar office and counters from Monday, 19 April 2021 until further notice, after an employee at the branch was tested positive for COVID-19.
This is following instructions from the Ministry of Health for the management of the premise to conduct disinfection and sanitisation. The employee is now under treatment for recovery while contact tracing is currently underway.
The Ministry has also instructed all EPF Kangar employees to be quarantined at home until 25 April 2021 and undergo COVID-19 swab tests.
