SOP monitoring stepped up at public places in KL, Putrajaya — FT minister

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 16): Monitoring of the standard operating procedures (SOPs) at public places is being stepped up following the transition of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor to Phase Two of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) since Sept 10.

Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim said this would be through closed-circuit TV (CCTV) recordings, public address (PA) system, emergency buttons and mobilising of the enforcement teams and patrol vehicles in enforcing the rules.

"We will be doing this regularly in controlling the situation and ensuring no violation of the SOPs.

"For example, the popular locations in Putrajaya are equipped with CCTVs and PA system with the situation monitored from the operations room and the announcements made and reminders on the SOPs given to the visitors.”

Shahidan said this to reporters after viewing the operations of Rumah Prihatin @ Grand Seasons in conjunction with Malaysia Day, here, today.

He said that for now, there are no plans to limit the number of visitors and visiting hours at popular spots as the situation was still under control.

“However, any changes to the rules will be decided through monitoring of the Covid-19 daily cases reported, which is the main criteria,” he added.
