LABUAN: Almost 100 eateries on this duty-free island have successfully implemented a standard operating procedure for fully vaccinated diners to eat in.

Labuan Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) chairman Rithuan Ismail said the new requirements as announced last week by the government had been well received by the food and beverage (F&B) operators.

The strict SOP was in line with the government’s relaxation rules for individuals who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

“Based on our survey and inspections, we are pleased to report that F&B operators are cooperative in ensuring compliance with the dine-in SOP. This is in tandem with the Labuan CITF’s efforts to keep Labuan a Covid-19 green zone,” he said after leading a spot check on Labuan Fishermen Wharf Restaurant and Living Room yesterday.

The spot check was initiated by the Labuan disaster management committee comprising representatives of the National Security Council, Labuan Police and Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry.

Rithuan said the committee also reported that all F&B operators and workers had also been fully vaccinated.

Meanwhile, Labuan Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Datuk Dahlif Singh said an advice note had been circulated to all 18 Indian F&B operators to implement the SOP for fully vaccinated diners.

“We want Indian restaurants to ensure all operators and workers are fully vaccinated before they resume operations.

“We have also asked that the digital vaccine certificates confirming that the operators and workers in the respective premises have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, be displayed on the walls of the premises,” he said.

Labuan entered Phase Three of the National Recovery Plan on Aug 4 that allows for economic sectors to operate, except for those listed in the “negative list” such as pedicure and manicure providers, reflexology centres and nightclubs. — Bernama
