KUCHING: Kampung Muara Tebas residents in the Demak Laut constituency are reminded to heed the standard operating procedures (SOPs) to avoid an extension to the ongoing enhanced movement control order (EMCO) in the locality.

Demak Laut assemblyman Dr Hazland Abang Hipni said cooperation from the dwellers is needed to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission in the village.

“Continue to follow the instructions of the Health Ministry staff from time to time. Cooperate and continue to follow the SOPs for the two weeks imposed under the EMCO.

“This is to prevent the EMCO from being extended,” he said when met after witnessing the distribution of the food aid to residents in Kampung Muara Tebas on Tuesday.

At the same time, Dr Hazland also thanked the frontline staff and government agencies such as the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), Fire and Rescue Department of Malaysia (JBPM), Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) and Marine Police, for helping to manage the control of EMCO in the village.

He also thanked the Malaysian Civil Defence Force (APM), People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela), Kampung Muara Tebas village development and security committee (JKKK), Public Works Department (JKR) and Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB).
