Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance & safeguards at PwC Malaysia

Effective 17 March 2020

Due to the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), which has been declared a global health pandemic by the World Health Organisation, PwC Malaysia (PwC) has implemented safeguards and taken additional steps to minimise its potential impact on our clients, employees and guests.

We have:

  • Closed our offices throughout Malaysia in line with the Movement Control Order (MCO) announced by the Government on 16 March 2020 to contain the COVID-19 outbreak, from 18 to 31 March 2020. UPDATE: As announced by the Government on 25 March 2020, the MCO is now extended to 14 April 2020. Our offices throughout Malaysia will remain closed throughout the MCO period. During this period, we will operate fully on a work-from-home basis. We will serve our clients virtually and stay agile in how we respond to their needs at this time.
  • Imposed restricted business travel to China, Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, South Korea, Italy, Iran, Japan, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark;
  • Directed our employees who have travelled to China, Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, South Korea, Italy, Iran, Japan, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark or been in physical contact with anyone who has been to any of these countries in the past 2 weeks to work from home and monitor their health for 14 days;
  • Encouraged a heightened awareness of personal hygiene including the use of masks and hand sanitisers as appropriate;
  • Directed our people to leverage the use of technology to conduct virtual meetings internally and with clients.

PwC’s safeguards:

Working with clients to safeguard the health and safety of our people

PwC requests our clients to take their own measures to respond to COVID-19, in accordance with guidelines from MOH.

If you are an organisation with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 and PwC clients or employees may be affected, we ask that you immediately notify your preferred PwC contact.

Guidelines on events (internal and external)

For the time being, we have deferred (or in some cases, cancelled) all internal or external events, as we endeavour to do our part to protect the health and safety of our employees, clients, and the communities around us. 

COVID-19 is an evolving situation. We will update this page as and when there are further developments.
