KUCHING, March 20: Five burger stalls in Kuching North City Hall (DBKU) area has been forced to close for operating beyond the 8pm stipulated time during their spot checks yesterday.

This was revealed by DBKU mayor Datu Junaidi Reduan who also annouced that its enforcement officers have started their rounds on food premises and traders with regards to the Restricted Movement Order (RMO).


“We are patrolling areas under DBKU jurisdiction to make sure all food premises follow the restricted movement order,” he said in a statement.

The council has started its monitoring, in collaboration with the police, since Wednesday (March 18), targeting areas in Matang, Metrocity, Semariang, Sukma Ria and Bandar Baru Semariang.

Junaidi was content that the first day operations revealed all food premises in the area adhere to the strict no “dine-in” policy and only opened for “take-away” and delivery of food.

“Five burger stalls were forced to close on the 19th of March, as new instruction was given, where food premises must be closed at 8pm. The burger stall operators were asked to return to their home,” he said.

He added that DBKU has formed its Covid-19 operations centre to monitor food premises not complying with the RMO. — DayakDaily
