SIBU: A recent check conducted by enforcement officers from the Health Department here showed that out of the 148 eateries visited, 50 outlet operators had not displayed the ‘No Smoking’ signs at their premises.

The smoking ban on all eateries in Sarawak took effect on Mar 1 this year.

Disclosing this yesterday, Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) chairman Datuk Tiong Thai King said the operators of these 50 eateries said they were still waiting for the ‘No Smoking’ signs to be given to them.

“So, I think there is nothing to worry about. For now, the ministry is doing the ‘educational’ enforcement, which ends on June 1 this year. So there will be no summons issued.

“We’re giving them a three-month grace period,” he said after witnessing the operation to put up ‘No Smoking’ signs at Sibu Central Market.

Tiong further said to date, nobody had been caught for lighting up at non-smoking areas.

“There are about 1,000 food premises in Sibu, and we hope the Health Department would have no problem checking all of them within these three months,” he said.
