Zouk initiates Flu Prevention Awareness Campaign
Zouk Club KL has announced that it will take some unprecedented steps in educating clubbers, customers, business partners and colleagues in the prevention of flu.
The campaign simply called, The FLU PREVENTION AWARENESS CAMPAIGN will take effect 1st July 2009. Another aim of the campaign is to put in preventive measure to protect the safety and health of the customers, visitors and staff which is especially poignant at a time like this where the news of the H1N1 flu is all over the media . The steps taken here are certainly the first for any club and probably one of the first companies in Malaysia to voluntarily go to these measures.
“According to reports, the H1N1 flu virus shares about the same statistics as the seasonal flu. However as a responsible club operator, we felt that it was in the interest of all our customers, visitors and staff that we put in some clear and concise preventive measures. We are also going to take this timely opportunity to educate our clubbers and staff alike about how important personal hygiene is in respect of the spread of this problem. I truly believe that together we can make sure Zouk KL is a flu free zone and can be enjoyed by everyone!”
Cher Ng (Executive Director, Zouk KL)
Preventive and Awareness Measures are being taken over two levels.

2. Company level

The response has been very positive with customers saying that they feel all the more confident in clubbing there now that such preventive steps have been taken.
