BUTTERWORTH: A restaurant manager was fined RM 1,000 for failing to follow standard operating procedures (SOP) during the recovery movement control (MCO) order on Tuesday (November 3).

North Seberang Prai OCPD Comm. Deputy Noorzainy Mohd Noor (Photo) clarified that the 30-year-old manager was fined during an operation to ensure compliance with the SOPs when the MCO is taken over in the neighborhood.

“The manager has been fined for failing to provide proper SOPs to his customers, for example by ensuring physical distancing on the premises, as advised,” he said in a statement on Tuesday (November 3) .

ACP Noorzainy said that in the same operation on the premises, a total of 18 restaurant customers, including six women, were also slapped with a compound of RM 1,000 each for violating SOPs.

He said they were fined for not practicing physical distancing while at the restaurant.

ACP Noorzainy said the individuals, who are all in their 30s, including the manager, were fined around 2:30 a.m. at the restaurant located in Jalan Raja Uda, Butterworth.

He said all of them were fined under Regulation 10 (8) of the Infectious Disease Prevention and Control Regulations 2020.
