KUCHING, Feb 11: Miri City Council (MCC) is intensifying its monitoring and enforcement operations on standard operating procedures (SOPs) imposed at its markets and any other licensed premises in light of the rise in number of Covid-19 cases.

Mayor Adam Yii Siew Sang said that public notice has been issued by the Council to remind all stall owners in the markets as well as operators of all licensed premises especially those premises classified as high-risk sectors, to strictly follow the SOPs imposed.

“Apart from the business operators, the general public should also be reminded that the SOPs imposed such as checking-in at any premises using the MySejahtera app, screening of body temperature (encouraged), maintaining physical distancing and whenever possible, wearing a face mask at all times, could effectively control the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said in a statement today.

He also urged everyone to give their full cooperation in view of the latest development on the Covid-19 situation in Sarawak.

“We cannot afford to make U-turn of facing another lockdown at the worst, as all sectors in Sarawak are entering into Phase 4 of the National Recovery Plan for the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Enforcement personnel from Miri Division Disaster Management Committee (DDMC) and the Council will increase their site inspection and enforcement action to ensure all concerned will adhere to the SOPs imposed,” he emphasised. — DayakDaily
