1. S’WAK GOVT TO DECIDE INTER STATE TRAVEL AFTER OFFICIAL NOTICE FROM FED GOVT
KUCHING: The Sarawak government will only decide on inter-state travel after official notice from federal government.
This was stated by Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas when asked to comment on the latest announcement by Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob that inter-state travel will no longer be allowed during the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) period.
However, Uggah pointed out that there are Sarawakians in other states of the country who may need to come back to Sarawak due to certain circumstances.
As such, he said the state government will only decide once it has received official notice from the federal government.
2. GREEN LIGHT FOR BISTRO WITHOUT LIVE BAND AND KARAOKE TO OPERATE
Meanwhile, Uggah at the same event has given green light for bistros in Sarawak to operate.
However, he said bistros are not allowed to provide entertainment services such as karaoke and live band performance.
3. CMCO: BETTER TO BE VIGILANT ALTHOUGH RAYA VISITS PERMITTED
KUALA LUMPUR: Members of the public are advised to take precautionary measures when celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri this weekend, to avoid any unwanted events in the current situation of the country which is facing the Covid-19 pandemic.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri said issues like visiting graves during Hari Raya would not be a problem if the people complied with the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).
However he said it is up to the directives issued by the respective states because if the grave visits are not allowed in some states they are made with the aim of preventing a Covid-19 outbreak.
Commenting further, Dr Zulkifli said if there was anything between ‘prohibition and consent’ the communities were urged to choose vigilance as a precautionary measure.
