MIRI (May 11): All food and drink shops here will not be allowed to provide dine in services from tomorrow (May 12) until further notice, said the Miri City Council (MCC).

In a statement today, MCC said the ban on dine in services is among the standard operating procedures (SOPs) imposed under the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), which have been revised and enhanced by the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC).

“Operators could only carry out supply and sale of food and drink items through takeaway, delivery, or drive through services, and the premises include restaurants, food and drink shops, bistros, cafés, and food court centres,” MCC said in the statement.

Other activities not permitted to operate in Miri and Subis Districts include massage centres, spa and reflexology centres; karaoke centres including family-type karaoke outlets; gymnasiums; premises with yoga, Zumba and similar nature of physical exercises; and sports and recreational activities at public parks, playgrounds, and beaches.

“The city council would like to draw special attention to all operators of food and drink shops under its jurisdiction towards the new procedure.

“Enforcement teams will continue to be deployed to all premises to oversee adherence of CMCO standard operating procedures, including the ban of dine-in service,” added MCC.
