Playing football at a field in Taman Bagan here at about 1.30am today proved to be a costly affair for a group of men. Eleven of them, aged between 19 and 23, each had to pay RM1,000 compound for violating the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO). Seberang Prai Utara district police chief Assistant Commissioner Noorzainy Mohd Noor, who confirmed the incident, said a team of police from the RMCO Compliance Task Force detained the men during checks in the neighbourhood.
Beginning today, some 18,800 Form Five and 2,200 Form Six students in Penang returned to school following a three-month interruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Strict standard operating procedures (SOP) were put in place at all 128 schools, which included body temperature checks and social distancing, before the students were allowed into their classrooms.
The Penang Civil Defence Force (APM) has been deployed to Batu Feringgi to ensure beachgoers' compliance with standard operating procedures (SOPs). Since the Recovery Movement Control Order's (RMCO) implementation on June 10, visitors have been thronging the tourist hotspot.
