JOHOR BARU: Action will be taken against business owners who don't listen to advice from local authorities in relation to the 14-day movement control order (MCO).

Johor Housing and Local Government Committee chairman Ayub Jamil said all local authorities had been told to hand out information notices to business owners, including stall operators and shop owners, on the guidelines they needed to adhere to during the MCO.

"Local authorities must first advise the business owners to adhere to the guidelines.
