Coupon system takes effect at Ramadan bazaars, wet markets in Melaka

MELAKA: A coupon system, aimed at minimising the number of visitors at Ramadan bazaars, has been made compulsory in the state, says Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali.

He said this takes effect from Thursday (April 22).

“The system will also be applicable for wet markets operating during Ramadan month, ” he said.

Sulaiman said the coupon system has been outlined under the standard operating procedures (SOP) set by the National Security Council.

“The organisers of these bazaars must implement the system to avoid action being taken against them, ” he said on Thursday.

Sulaiman said the police will continue to monitor the compliance of SOP at all the bazaars statewide.

Earlier, Sulaiman handed over a one-off payment totalling RM253,500 to 199 tourism players in the state.

He said the state government decided to distribute the monetary assistance to minimise some of the impact faced by the tourism industry due to Covid-19.

Sulaiman said the state government is also in the midst of introducing a certificate of compliance of Covid-19 SOP by working closely with the Malaysia Productivity Corporation (MPC) and Melaka Tourism Promotion Board.

He said the certification targeting tourist facilities and places is to give confidence to visitors on the heath safety aspect.
