JOHOR BARU: All business premises around Johor have been adhering to the movement control order (MCO) imposed by the god vernment in controlling the Covid-19 outbreak.
State local government and housing committee chairman Ayub Jamil said all businesses, which were allowed to operate under the MCO in their respective local councils jurisdiction, were complying with the 7am and 7pm operating hours.
He added that this was in line with the objective of MCO, which is to minimise movement.
"We would like to thank all local councils that have issued notices informing all business premises about the matter and also conducting enforcement between the operating hours.
"However, there are several businesses that are operating on normal hours such as dialysis centres and private clinics," he said in a statement here on Thursday (March 26).
Ayub, who is also the Rengit assemblyman, added that petrol stations were allowed by the National Security Council to operate except for those that have shops at the stations where they must adhere to the 7am until 7pm operating hours.
He also said that for workshops, spare parts shops as well as tyre shops, they must get their respective local council's approval first and should offer their service based on "On Call Services".
"All of these are done to stop Covid-19 from spreading and based upon my own surveillance, many are following the MCO.
"I urge and call upon everyone to work together with the government to curtail such dangerous disease from spreading in our country," he added.
