KUCHING: The Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) will soon announce the standard operating procedure (SOP) for the coming Hari Raya Puasa and Gawai Dayak.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said the committee would evaluate the progress of the fight against Covid-19 prior to setting the SOP.

“SDMC is dynamic,” he said at SDMC’s Covid-19 daily update press conference yesterday.

“We will work on it. One of the biggest challenges we have is to maintain the green zones,” he said, adding that the current decision stands, that is, not to allow Ramadan or Gawai bazaars.

Uggah, who is also SDMC chairman, stressed that it was very important for social distancing to be practised all the time.
