KUANTAN: The Kuantan Municipal Council (MPK) headquarters complex has been temporarily closed after about 40 staffers tested positive for Covid-19.

MPK president Datuk Hamdan Hussin said the complex was closed starting yesterday for sanitisation, and all staff and members of the public would not be allowed into the premises until the work was completed.

An announcement will be made later on when the complex will be reopened.

“Services requiring the physical presence of applicants have been postponed until the resumption of operations at the MPK headquarters complex, ” Hamdan said in a statement.

Pahang state secretary Datuk Seri Dr Sallehuddin Ishak, when contacted, said all MPK employees and their family members had been placed under a Home Surveillance Order, with staff having to work from home.

“The situation is under control. The infection was imported from outside Pahang, which then spread to the family of an MPK employee before infecting others, ” Sallehuddin said.

He added that enforcement work and other town operations were not affected because the infection only involved the administration division at the complex.

Those who want to use MPK’s services to pay assessment bills, renew licences, settle compounds, lodge complaints and submit development plans can conduct their transactions online via its website — Bernama
