PETALING JAYA: All 224 Persons Under Surveillance (PUS) in the district here are fully complying with the standard operating procedure (SOP).
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the PUS consisted of Malaysians who were ordered to quarantine themselves at home after returning from overseas.
"We have 13 compliance operation teams conducting inspections daily. They are working together with Health Ministry personnel when making their rounds and checking on the PUS," he told a press conference on Monday (July 27).
ACP Nik Ezanee said checks found that all PUS were at home and complying with the SOP set by the Health Ministry.
"We also found that 95% of business premises in the district, including restaurants and shopping complexes, are fully adhering to the SOP.
"While restaurants are allowed to operate at full capacity, it is heartening to see that some restaurants are still limiting the number of customers," he added.
ACP Nik Ezanee said action was taken against business owners who did not follow the SOP.
"We have also received reports of customers who argue with restaurant workers over wearing face masks.
"Owners should make a police report if they encounter such problems," he said.
ACP Nik Ezanee advised the public to remain vigilant as the fight against Covid-19 has not ended.
"If you see a restaurant that is full of people, search for an alternative. Avoid places that hamper social distancing," he added.
ACP Nik Ezanee said police arrested 20 people for being at entertainment locations without following the SOP as well as issued 384 compounds over the weekend.
