KUCHING: Kota Samarahan Municipal Council (MPKS) chairman Datuk Peter Mino expressed his satisfaction with the level of adherence to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) in Samarahan.
When contacted by New Sarawak Tribune, he said that residents living within the jurisdiction of MPKS have gotten used to the SOPs and are complying with the guidelines set by the state government.
“So far, everything is good. The people are now getting used to SOPs and are complying with it everywhere they go, especially at eateries.
“At the market areas, they are also complying with the SOPs as our enforcement team regularly conducts spot checks.
“With this, the people will follow the guidelines and the procedures that have been set,” he said.
Minos also said that there are less people going to eateries because of the fasting month.
“Yes, there are not many crowds at eateries. There are even some places that do not operate during the day,” he said.
Minos said that vendors are still operating despite the lack of Ramadan bazaars this year.
“The vendors are very creative in finding ways to make profit during tough times. The council has no problem with what they are doing,” he said.
Although vendors are still allowed to do business, Minos added that the SOPs need to be adhered to at all times by vendors.
“The MPKS enforcement team and police will be more active in carrying out their duties,” he said.
He also urged everyone to support the government’s efforts in fighting Covid-19 and to stay home and stay safe at all times.
