Covid-19: Takeaways no longer allowed in Jerantut, Pekan, Raub



CORONAVIRUS | Eateries in Jerantut, Pekan and Raub will no longer be allowed to cater for takeaway orders beginning Tuesday.

Pahang state secretary Dr Sallehuddin Ishak in a statement today said the directive also applied to fast food outlets in the three districts.

The order would take effect until the end of the movement control order (MCO) period.

“The directive is issued as Jerantut and Pekan recorded the highest number of Covid-19 cases in Pahang, while the outbreak situation is worrying in Raub.

“During this ruling, only delivery service is allowed,” he said.

Sallehuddin said local authorities in the three districts have been instructed to carry out strict enforcement to ensure full compliance with the order.

The MCO which was initially scheduled for March 18 to 31 has been extended to April 14.
