Restaurant’s two outlets close temporarily for sanitising

DAYS after reopening for dine-in, Penang’s famous Hameediyah Restaurant in Campbell Street has closed temporarily after its staff members tested positive for Covid-19.

Its other outlet in Sungai Ara also closed for a similar reason.

In a statement, it said both outlets closed on Monday afternoon.

All its staff members had been tested for Covid-19 and currently quarantined at home.

“At Hameediyah Restaurant, the health and well-being of the people and community are our priority.

“Unfortunately, staff members from our two outlets have tested positive for Covid-19.

“The outlets will be closed temporarily for sanitising and cleaning until further notice from the Health Ministry,” said the statement on Tuesday.

Among the measures taken by the restaurant are quarantining its staff members for 10 days before and after receiving their test results.

Last year, the outlet in Campbell Street made it into the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR) as the country’s ‘Oldest Nasi Kandar Restaurant’ after 114 years in business.

In 2019, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah had lunch there during a three-day visit to Penang.
