A Kajang Line Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) operation staff has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now quarantined at Sungai Buloh Hospital

The staff, who is a train operator or 'transit officer', was last on duty on 21 October 2020.

According to a statement earlier today, 25 October, RapidKL said that they carried out disinfection and cleaning work for the Kajang Line MRT last night, 24 October.

"Other staff who had been in close contact with the infected staff have been asked to undergo screening and self-quarantine for 14 days as stipulated by the Ministry of Health's (MOH) standard operating procedures (SOP)," read the statement.

RapidKL has since alerted all relevant authorities

"All relevant agencies including the National Security Council (NSC), the Ministry of Transport, and the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD) have been informed of the steps that have been taken," it said.

RapidKL assured that the Kajang Line MRT and other public transport services operated by Prasarana, such as LRT, monorail, and Rapid Transit Bus are safe to use.

"However, users are reminded to follow the prescribed SOP namely the use of face masks, hand sanitiser or disinfectant liquid, take body temperature, and register with the MySejahtera application or the logbook before entering the train," it added.
