KUANTAN The Pahang government has agreed to allow all business premises in the state to operate from 7 am to 10 pm during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) period.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said the decision was made after receiving feedback from associations and traders especially those operating food business on the matter.
“We will review the matter from time to time, taking into account the COVID-19 situation in Pahang as well as compliance of guidelines and standard operating procedures (SOP) issued by the government.
“I hope that we will not lose focus in our efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19,” he said in a statement here today.
However, Wan Rosdy said the limited operating hours are not applicable for businesses listed as essential services such as clinic, petrol stations and factories, which are allowed to operate according to the times stipulated in their business licence.
