KUCHING, Oct 2: Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) advises eateries and food and beverage (F&B) outlets to provide fork, spoon and chopsticks to be soaked in hot water for disinfection purposes.
MPP in a statement said it is one of the terms for eateries to maintain their trading licence.
The municipal council added that action can be taken against eateries or F&B outlets including revoking their licences if they do not follow the latest guidelines.
MPP urges traders and businesses operating within its jurisdiction to adhere and comply with the standard operating procedures (SOP) by the government in order to curb the transmission of Covid-19.
At the same time, the council encourages business premises to use at least one of the digital apps, such as My Sejahtera, Qmunity or Covid Trace to register customers that visit their outlets.
MPP noted the app was developed to monitor the transmission of Covid-19 as well as assisting the Ministry of Health to obtain crucial information so that prompt action can be taken to curb the transmission of the virus.
Meanwhile MPP chairman Lo Khere Chiang, during a ground visit with his officers, had placed stickers on the wall reminding eateries to soak their cutlery with hot water for disinfection purposes.
He also distributed flyers on the use of digital app at MPP areas. —DayakDaily
