SEREMBAN, April 17 — Ramadan bazaars in the state found to have violated the standard operating procedures (SOP) set to curb the Covid-19 outbreak, will face a three-day closure, said Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun.
Aminuddin said it was a reminder to all quarters including bazaar operators and members of the public to comply with the SOP and avoid the emergence of a new Covid-19 cluster.
“I was informed that there was a problem at a Ramadan bazaar in Nilai near here but I had asked the mayor to call and warn all bazaar operators to comply with the SOP.
“We also leave it to the authorities to take other actions, including issuing compounds, if they still disobey the directive,” he told reporters after attending the Social Integration and Outreach programme ‘Rujukan Raya Tanpa Covid - Jom Shopping Raya’ here today.
Aminuddin urged members of the public not to flout the SOP set to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak to ensure that this economic activity could continue to be held as usual.
