Don’t rearrange your tables, chairs, eateries warned

Date:

KUCHING: Operators of eateries have been warned against rearranging the layout of tables and chairs after inspections have been carried out at their respective premises.

The tables and chairs have been arranged in accordance with the requirements under the current standard operating procedures (SOPs) issued by the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC).

Kuching South City Council (MBKS) would not tolerate those found to have violated the SOPS by rearranging the tables and chairs after it had inspected the premises, said Kuching South City mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng.

“The tables and chairs are not to be moved or changed after the council had carried out the inspection.

“Operators are to give their full cooperation and to strictly follow the SOPs to avoid being compounded by the enforcement,” he added.

Recently, Wee, together with MBKS public health officers and enforcement officers as well as Social Distancing Ambassadors (SDAs), went to GalaCity and Saradise to check on the compliance of SOPs by operators of business premises there following the lifting of the dine-in ban in Kuching and other southern district last month.

“The public are also advised to keep wearing their face masks before and after their meals. Everyone needs to play their role in reducing the positive cases in Kuching by following the SOPs.

“With everyone’s cooperation, the coffee shops and eateries will be able to operate as usual. MBKS enforcement officers will be going around to check and ensure all coffee shops and eateries follow the SOPs,” he added.

Wong said, “For any queries on the arrangement of tables and chairs in the premises, business owners or operators, refer to the MBKS public health and licensing division.”
