GEORGE TOWN: Penang recorded one Covid-19 case today, when an employee of American data communications and telecommunications equipment provider Motorola Solutions tested positive for the virus.

It is learnt that the employee had returned to work in the state with flu-like symptoms, after visiting Kuala Lumpur over a week ago.

Motorola Solutions director of communications (Asia Pacific and International Commercial Markets) Damien Batey confirmed the news in an email to the New Straits Times, saying it was working closely with the Health Ministry and following their guidelines to minimise the risk of further exposure.

“All our staff in Penang will work from home for the next two weeks and all necessary actions are being taken for them to return after that time. Additionally, all of our facilities are being sanitised,” he added.

Batey said Motorola Solutions remains committed to supporting its public safety and enterprise customers during this time, as they do during natural disasters and other widespread emergencies.

“We have business continuity plans in place, and we encourage customers to plan ahead and contact us with questions.”

The Motorola Solutions Penang facility is involved in design, research and development along with supplier management work.

As such, no production disruptions are believed to be involved, as all the company’s staff continue working from their respective homes.

“We are keeping in close contact with the industry, and the last thing we want is a panic situation," Invest-in-Penang Berhad’s director and special investment advisor to the Penang Chief Minister Datuk Seri Lee Kah Choon said, adding that the state government is keeping in touch with the industry, to avoid a panic situation.

“We are also in close contact with the health authorities to disseminate public health care protocol information, as well as encouraging self-quarantine initiatives if companies are in doubt,“ Lee added.
