Kuala Lumpur (ANTARA) - The Indonesian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur will be closed from Nov 30 to Dec 4, 2020 after several of its employees have contracted the COVID-19.

All services at the embassy will be temporarily closed while the building is sprayed with disinfectants to avert the spread of COVID-19, the embassy said in a circular released on Saturday.

However, the embassy will continue to serve applications for travel documents in lieu of passport (SPLP) that have been processed by following health protocols.

The embassy called on Indonesian citizens to comply with the health protocols by using masks, washing hands and keeping physical distance.

Coordinator for Information, Social and Cultural Function of the Embassy Yoshi Iskandar confirmed that several employees of the embassy have contracted the COVID-19.

"It is true there are staffers testing positive (for the COVID-19). The embassy has taken steps to conduct swab tests on all its staffers and imposed a work-from-home policy for the embassy's staff," he said.
