The affected staff are now receiving treatment for recovery while contact tracing is currently underway.
The EPF is taking the necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of its employees and members of the public. All frontliners at the affected branch have taken the COVID-19 swab test, and if a staff displays symptoms, they will be required to undergo quarantine.
