Jabil is closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and doing everything in our power to keep our people safe. Following an assessment from Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM) on 25 November, we have temporarily suspended operations in Plant 1. All other Jabil sites in Penang continue to operate.

The company’s commitment to employees’ health, safety, and well-being remain at the forefront of everything we do. Jabil is complying with all the necessary protection measures and working closely with KKM, local government officials and local health authorities to follow protocols. These include enhancing some of the existing site epidemic protocols, conducting a full plant sanitisation, swab tests and mandatory quarantine for employees.

The company began swab testing since 18 November. As of 25 November, more than 2,000 employees have been tested with 21 confirmed positive cases.

The site continues to carry out Jabil Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) protocols which include:

• Enhanced building sanitation protocols
