Play it safe, says MPP chief

Lo speaking to reporters.

KUCHING: Members of the public, especially hawkers, in areas under the jurisdiction of The Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) reminded the public and hawkers under its jurisdiction to be alert and careful, especially when being out in public because of the current Covid-19 situation.

MPP chairman Lo Khere Chiang said this to reporters after visiting the Kota Sentosa Temporary Hawker Centre today.

Lo mentioned that hawkers must always be careful and follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) to prevent the spread of the virus in the market area.

“Whether doing businesses indoors or in open areas, they still need to be very careful.

“This is because if there is a positive case in one market, other markets will also be ordered to close,” he said.

At the same time, he also praised those responsible for managing the hawker centre in ensuring that it is always clean and complies with the SOPs.

“We are thankful because hawkers in this area are always careful and until now, no markets in the MPP area have been ordered to close. Therefore, we hope that this would continue,” he said.
