KUANTAN: The Pahang government wants all visitors and those returning from Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya to observe the new normal in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the state.

State secretary Datuk Seri Dr Sallehuddin Ishak said those who came in from the conditional movement control order (MCO) areas should limit their movement and interaction with high risk individuals such as the elderly, pregnant women and children.

“They must also adhere to the standard operating procedures strictly, such as practising physical distancing, wear face mask, wash hands with soap or hand sanitiser and avoid shaking hands with others, ” he said in a statement.

Sallehuddin added that returnees were advised not to go to crowded public places such as kenduri, houses of worship, shopping centres, eateries and recreational areas.

“This is because there have been many asymptomatic Covid-19 cases, ” he said.

Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya have been placed under conditional MCO until Oct 27.

Sallehuddin said the returnees were also encouraged to check their Covid-19 infection status by getting tested so as to avoid infecting their families.

“For individuals whose workplaces have been closed due to positive cases, they are required to report to the nearest district health office for risk assessment and testing as well as undergo self-quarantine at home.

“If they have any symptoms, they are advised to go to the nearest private or Health Ministry facility for testing, ” he said.

He reiterated that group events or activities with more than 100 people were not allowed in localities with positive cases.

“Let us practice the new normal and comply with the SOP so that Pahang can be free from Covid-19 and become a safe place for the people.

“Do not become the cause of the spread of Covid-19 in our community, ” said Sallehuddin.
