Stick to standard operating procedures

Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman

KUCHING: The public have been told that they must continue to adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the authorities as more economic activities resume under the recovery movement control order (RMCO).

Tupong assemblyman Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman said it was up to them to be positive about going back to their usual activities while being mindful of what have become the new norm.

“The positive changes are due to our strict and full adherence to the guidelines and SOPs enforced by the authorities,” he told New Sarawak Tribune on Sunday. 

Fazzrudin was commenting on the federal government’s decision to replace the conditional movement control order with RMCO, which will take effect from this Wednesday (June 10) until Aug 31.

He said it was important to ensure the resumption and continuation of economic activities because people depended on them to generate or earn income.

“All of these (economic activities) are possible now as we have more knowledge about the pandemic and how to manage it properly,” he said.

He believed that the Sarawak government would be looking at the most appropriate SOPs for the local scenario.

“In Matang, especially, we have many people whose only sources of income are from full-time small-scale trading and operating stalls at night markets. With the new development, we will provide the platform for them to earn income,” he said.
