MIRI, Feb 11: Miri City mayor cum Pujut assemblyman Adam Yii Siew Sang said that Miri City Council (MCC) is intensifying its monitoring and enforcement operations on the standard operating procedures (SOPs) imposed at markets, ‘tamu’, ‘pasar malam’ and other licensed premises under the council’s jurisdiction.

He said this is considering the number of Covid-19 cases reported and new clusters discovered nationwide.

Yii added that the council had issued a public notice to remind all stallholders in the council’s markets, ‘tamu’ and ‘pasar malam’, and operators of all licensed premises, especially those classified as high-risk sectors, to strictly follow the SOPs.

In addition to that, he also reminded the public that the SOPs imposed include using the MySejahtera app to check in before entering any premises, body temperature checks, maintaining physical distancing, and wearing face masks at all times and could effectively control the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic.

“We cannot afford to make a U-turn of facing another lockdown as all sectors in Sarawak are entering Phase 4 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP),” he said.

Enforcement personnel from the Miri Division Disaster Management Committee and council will increase their monitoring and enforcement efforts to ensure all concerned adhere to the SOPs. — DayakDaily
