GEORGE TOWN: A restaurant owner is now poorer by RM10,000 for allowing patrons who have yet to be fully vaccinated to dine in.
Beside the owner, six other people were also fined RM2,000 each during an inspection by the police at the restaurant in Magazine Road here at around 10.50pm on Friday.
George Town OCPD Asst Comm Soffian Santong said the six were aged between 23 and 57.
“The six who dined in were found to have completed only their first dose of the vaccine.
“The restaurant owner was at fault for allowing customers to dine in despite them being not fully vaccinated,” he said.
ACP Soffian said all the offenders were compounded under Sections 16 and 17 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act.
