Over the weekend, a Twitter user named @deria_nadya had complained that the well-known Subang Parade Shopping Mall hasn’t been adhering to the Covid-19 SOPs set by the government, thus putting visitors at risk.
According to the netizen, children could be seen running around the mall unsupervised, and social distancing were not enforced by the staff on duty at the mall in Subang Jaya.
However, Subang Jaya District Director Mohd Khalid announced today (Monday, 30th August) that officers were sent to inspect Subang Parade to verify the allegations. Following the inspection, no rules were found to be broken. “While the public are encouraged to report violations of SOPs, it has to be based on facts and evidences; not just empty allegations,” Mohd Khalid was quoted as saying.
Having said that, Subang Parade did release a statement, informing the public that there was at least 1 confirmed Covid-19 case reported at the Village Grocer outlet in the mall. With that, it’s business as usual after a sanitisation process was carried out.
As daily cases are still at an all time high, the public are still advised to stay safe and avoid crowded places unless absolutely necessary. The battle against Covid-19 is far from over.
