Hotel operators in the duty-free island will enable local authorities to ensure that the Quarantine order and the standard operating procedures ( SOP) of COVID-19 are completely complied with.
Nurzalika Kartika Abdullah director of the Labuan National Security Council (MKN), said that an RM1,000 compound could be imposed against operators of hotels who do not obey the order and SOPs such as permitting visitors to leave their rooms.
“We are constantly conducting checks on guests who are in quarantine in hotels located downtown and in the outskirts, to ensure all comply with the quarantine order and SOPs.
“Those with quarantine wristband must not be seen roaming around town, shopping or mingling with the public,” she told.
At least 21 hotels comprising a five-star hotel and budget hotels have been authorized to take over quarantine in their premises (mostly local, foreign crew, petroleum and gas service staff, technical staff)
Kartika stated that the hotel in Labuan would soon be used by quarantined guests returning from abroad in Malaysia before the approval of the federal government.
