KUCHING: One person was slapped with a compound for failing to adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) in the state.

Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) chairman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said the compound was issued to an errant individual in Bintulu.

“The police will continue to monitor and enforce the SOPs including the use of face masks and social distancing in public places.

“Meanwhile, the Ministry of Local Government issued 82 verbal, written, and seizure warnings in areas under the supervision of various local councils,” he said during the daily Covid-19 update press conference on Monday (Sept 28).

On the SOPs compliance monitoring, patrol teams have inspected 1,421 premises throughout Sarawak.

These include 255 restaurants, supermarkets (192), banks (92), places of worship (65), public markets (56), hawker stalls (49), leisure places (40), government offices (37), seven construction sites, four factories, and others (624).
