SIBU: Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) is going all out in ensuring that all coffee shops in areas under its jurisdiction fully comply with the standard operating procedures (SOP) under the ongoing Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).

In this respect, SMC Public Health, Environment and Municipal Services Standing Committee vice-chairperson Jenny Ting said her team had joined the council’s enforcement officers in conducting inspections on these premises.
According to her, the operation kicked off on May 15 and would run until May 22.

Yesterday, they inspected coffee shops at Chew Geok Lin Road, High Street, Market Road, Workshop Road, and Cross Road here.

“This is an initiative by the council. The councillors must go to the ground and make sure that all coffee shops in SMC areas are complying with the SOP set by the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC).

“Before this, these shops were only allowed to provide takeaways – now that dine-in is allowed, we must be very cautious,” she said yesterday.

“So far, many coffee shop owners seem to understand the SOP better and have been complying with this directive.

“However, there are some who are still not complying with the SOP.”

Ting said for now, the SMC would only give advice to the operators, pending further instructions from SDMC with regard to the implementation of more stringent rules.

“We can see that some coffee shops do not display any notice about their full-time operations, which they are required to do. Some do not know that they must register first before being allowed to operate full time.

“For now, we advise them on the way to do it.

“The process is actually very simple, and everything is done online,” she said, while expressing her hope for the coffee shops association would help the owners apply for full-time operations.

Ting added that despite the May 22 deadline, SMC unit would continue to run daily inspection to ensure that the coffee shop operators would always comply with the SOP.
