BINTULU: Three salons here were compounded RM2,000 each for offering services other than haircuts during the inspection of the standard operating procedure (SOP) compliance operations conducted by the Bintulu Divisional Health Office on Saturday (July 24).

During the inspection on the same day, a total of 46 business premises were checked for their adherence to the SOP guidelines and four compound notices were issued for violations including one compound for failing to scan the MySejahtera application when entering the premises.

Bintulu Divisional Health officer Dr Melvin Chung Hsien Liang said during the movement control order (MCO) period, the community should be aware and not complacent in adhering to the SOPs.

“We hope to keep the number of cases to a single digit, and if possible, to zero.

“When the number of cases increases, the authorities will be responsible for it, but today the number of cases has reduced and therefore, the responsibility has shifted back to the community,” he remarked when met during the operations.

Chung stated that the number of Covid-19 cases in Bintulu will probably increase if the community is still stubborn and further breach the SOPs provided.

“SOPs such as physical distancing, wearing face masks, scanning the MySejahtera app before entering the premises, and more are the norm since last year.

“Therefore, we should all be aware of our responsibilities when we are in the public area,” he added.
