Taipei, July 22 (CNA) CityLink Songshan Station shopping mall closed its doors temporarily on Thursday, after an employee at the MUJI store there tested positive for COVID-19 the previous day.

The first and second floors of the mall will open again on Friday, while shops on the third floor, where the MUJI store is located, will reopen on Sunday, CityLink said on its Facebook page.

According to Taipei's Department of Health, the employee was notified Tuesday that they had been listed as a contact of a COVID-19 patient.

The employee, who lives in Taoyuan, was commuting by train from Taoyuan Railway Station to Songshan Station and was at work on July 8-10, 12, 14-15, and 20, the department said.

On Thursday, the Taipei health department also released the details of two other COVID-19 cases in the city that were reported Monday and Tuesday, respectively.
