SHAH ALAM: Selangor police have conducted nearly 8,000 Ops Patuh checks at factories and business premises, says state police chief Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed.
He said that until Thursday (July 8) a total of 7,922 checks were carried out to ensure factories and business premises were following the movement control order standard operating procedures.
Comm Arjunaidi said 266 compound notices were issued for a variety of offences.
“This includes failing to adhere to the SOP, workers failing to register with MySejahtera before entering their workplace as well as factories producing non-essential items when they only have permission to only produce essential items.
“This is an ongoing operation, so business premises and factories must follow the SOP or face the consequences,” he said at a virtual press conference on Friday (July 9).
Comm Arjunaidi also said the compliance rate during the enhanced MCO in Selangor was estimated to be between 90 and 92%.
“That said, since July 3 we have issued 1,045 compound notices for various SOP violations.
“The most common violations committed are not wearing a face mask, not observing physical distancing and failing to register before entering a premise,” he said.
Comm Arjunaidi urged the people of Selangor to adhere to the SOP in order to bring down the number of Covid-19 infections in the state.
“We must work together if we want the situation to get better,” he said.
