The infected staff reportedly works in an administrative role and is not part of the frontline staff serving customers.

Staff from the outlet will contact customers who have made appointments to reschedule them.

Speedy recovery to the staff

MS News wishes the HDB employee a speedy recovery and hopes he will be discharged soon.

While the HDB branch closure will likely bring inconvenience for customers, we hope they understand it’s done for their best interest and safety.
