KUALA LUMPUR: Companies and business premises under the tourism and culture subsectors are now allowed to operate without having to apply for approval through the Covid-19 Intelligent Management System (CIMS).

The Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry said they are, however, subject to the condition of having fully vaccinated employees strictly observing the standard operating procedure.

It said each company or business premises must also ensure that the number of employees does not exceed the maximum capacity allowed, and put on display a valid copy of their latest Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) certificate and business licence.

The ministry added that compound notices under Section 25 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act (Act 342) can be issued to companies or business premises that fail to adhere to these conditions.

“It is hoped that the industry will cooperate in ensuring compliance with the SOP and other government directives issued through the National Security Council from time to time,” it said in a statement yesterday. — Bernama
