IPOH: The state government will not hesitate to take drastic action, including closing Ramadan bazaars, if Covid-19 standard operating procedure is not adhered to, says Datuk Nolee Ashilin Mohamed Radzi.

The Perak Local Government Committee chairman said they have been receiving reports of non-compliance of SOP at several bazaars.

She also said warnings will be given by enforcement teams before compounds are issued.

“If the situation is beyond control, with more complaints, we will consider shutting down such bazaars as a last resort, ” she told reporters after launching a community library at the Seri Kepayang flats here on Thursday (April 15).

Asked about visitors bringing young children to the bazaars, Nolee Ashilin advised parents to avoid bringing children along.

“However, if it's unavoidable, then all safety measures must be taken.

“We must all be very careful as the Covid-19 cases are not reducing but increasing.

“We really do not want to see Ramadan bazaar clusters, ” she said.
