KUALA LUMPUR (May 28): Business premises such as shopping malls, restaurants, boutiques and retail outlets here are encouraged to use the KLStep application to record details and attendance of customers visiting their premises.
Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan said the move was aimed at ensuring the standard operating procedures (SOPs), especially visitor control at business premises, are implemented as recommended by the Ministry of Health (MoH).
"Now, some outlets are recording on their own (visitors details) but in future, we want this system (KLStep) to be used by all business premises in the city.
"We have informed all premises and hoped the matter will be expedited as it is very easy to implement,” he told reporters after launching the KLStep application at the Sogo Shopping Mall here today.
To use the system, customers who wish to enter the premises would need to scan the QR (quick response) code using their smartphone, after which they have to input their name, telephone number and temperature readings for record purposes.
The details would help the MoH to do contact tracing, should Covid-19 cases be detected at these places.
Nor Hisham said Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) plans to extend KLStep to public markets in the city such as at Jalan Raja Bot, but is still looking into the best method as the area is open and has freedom of movement.
"For small traders such as hawkers, they can continue with the SOP (writing down details of visitors) as usual, as they do not have many customers and provide takeaway services,” he added.
Based on his inspections so far, Nor Hisham said he was satisfied with the SOPs compliance of business premises such as providing hand sanitisers and practising social distancing at their outlets.
