PETALING JAYA: A glovemaker in Port Klang escaped a shutdown order after being slapped with a RM1,000 fine for failing to comply with Covid-19 preventive measures and providing seemingly poor living conditions for workers.

The factory was earlier expected to be shut down after it was found to have breached several rules. A statement released yesterday evening showed that only the compound was issued against it.

Klang district environmental health officer Ili Syazwani Mohd Mashudi had said there were no records of sanitisation and disinfection that were supposed to be carried out at least three times a day.
