Midnight deadline for business activities

KUANTAN: Operating hours for business activities in Pahang districts with active Covid-19 cases are now limited to midnight in an effort to curb the spread of the virus.

State secretary Datuk Seri Dr Sallehuddin Ishak said this directive included convenience stores and other business premises.

However, it does not apply to medical centres, clinics and petrol stations.

“As for leisure and social activities, these are also allowed until midnight only.

“Activities are subject to compliance with standard operating procedures (SOP).

“If the SOP is difficult to maintain, then the event or activity will not be allowed, ” he said.

Public events, including feasts, involving more than 100 people at any one time must be postponed for 14 days from the last detected case, said Sallehuddin.

“All mosques, surau and places of worship located in localities or areas with active cases are to be closed for 14 days.

“All night market activities in these localities are also to be postponed for 14 days.

“For cases of close contact to positive cases at school before a detection is made, the class involved will be closed for 14 days, ” he said.

Sallehuddin also reminded supermarkets to ensure compliance with SOP set by the National Security Council to prevent transmission.

“At this moment, the spread of Covid-19 in Pahang is still under control.

“Most cases in the state involved individuals who have visited Sabah, ” he said in a statement.

Sallehuddin added that individuals who had travelled from Sabah after Sept 27 were encouraged to continue self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival and undergo testing on day 13 even after being cleared from quarantine.

As of Oct 1, there were four active Covid-19 cases each in Kuantan and Jerantut as well as one in Temerloh.
