MELAKA: The level of compliance with Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) at Ramadan bazaars in the state is still unsatisfactory, says state police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Majid Mohd Ali.
He said it was disappointing to observe people at a number of bazaars in all three districts in the state.
“There were those who failed to scan (check-in codes) with the MySejahtera app, check their temperature or observe the necessary social distancing, ” he said on Monday (April 19).
DCP Abdul Majid said some visitors to the bazaars also brought small children along.
“My officers used their discretion to advise visitors during the first week of Ramadan and will start issuing summonses if the non-compliance continues, ” he said.
DCP Abdul Majid said Melaka police will also hold talks with the four local councils and suggest a numbering system to keep track of the number of those visiting the bazaars at any one point in time.
“This is also aimed at preventing the emergence of a new Covid-19 cluster, ”he added.
