|AMCHAM Update #263 COVID-19 Outbreak|
During this period of Movement Control Order (MCO), AMCHAM will be bringing you daily updates on the latest COVID-19 developments, which includes the efforts of the Government and initiatives from other bodies and organizations.
Low-risk asymptomatic COVID-positive patients can opt to stay in hotels designated as quarantine centres with permission from medical officers, if they can afford to do so. Low-risk patients in Categories 1,2 or 3 at quarantine centres such as the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS) or other centres can request to do so if they or their employers can foot the bill, with the approval of medical officers.
AMCHAM will be having a Corporate Citizenship Committee Meeting on the 24th of May, 2021.
This meeting serves as the main platform through which members in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) space gather to share and update each other on CSR related news and to roll out AMCHAM's CSR agenda for the year.
AMCHAM strongly recommends its members to participate in the CCC meetings, especially the CSR leads, Managers or Head of the CSR departments to stay updated to what's happening in the area.

With COVID-19 having affected every aspect of life, most businesses recognise that lifestyles will change in the years ahead, but few are actually reshaping their growth strategies to prepare for the changes that are coming, says Accenture. In a recent survey, the professional services firm found that 65% of senior executives in Malaysia expect emerging new lifestyles to arrive within five years.
Enterprises today are embracing digital and analytics transformations as never before. Even those that did not expect to embark upon major IT changes have had to adopt fully remote ways of working due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In fast-moving business environments, companies make many necessary IT changes on the fly, with security waivers and risk-mitigation promissory notes issued almost as readily as authorization-to-operate (ATO) certifications.
