Public transport at HIDE-listed stations, terminals to continue operations

PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): All public transport services at stations and terminals listed under the Hotspot Identification for Dynamic Engagement (HIDE) early warning system will continue to operate.

The Transport Ministry said in a statement on Sunday (May 9) that the three stations involved are the KLCC LRT, Masjid Jamek LRT and KL Sentral.

"However, all business premises at the stations listed will be closed for three days from May 9 to 11 in accordance with the directives issued by the National Security Council (NSC) as announced on Saturday (May 8), ” the statement read.

It added that any closure or opening of these businesses is subject to the NSC's directives from time to time, and said that public transport services were very important for the country, especially for frontliners who relied on continuous operations even during the implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO) in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.

"All public transport stations must always be open for the purpose of transferring or delivering essential supplies in the event of an emergency, ” it said.

The Ministry said the stations were also equipped with thermal scanners in addition to the strict enforcement of COVID-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs).

It also reminded all public transport users to continue to adhere to SOPs including washing hands frequently, wearing face masks, maintaining physical distance and scanning the MySejahtera QR code. - Bernama
