#TTFCovid19: The Penang state government has disallowed hairdressing shops from operating during the federal enforced Movement Control Order (MCO) despite the green light given by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI).

State Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said today the decision was made by the Penang Security Council Committee (JKKN) which he chaired in the morning.

Yesterday, the Government of Malaysia (GoM) allowed nine sectors previously prohibited from conducting business under the MCO to resume operations.

These include the aerospace, automotive, machine, equipment sectors and a host of service based industries, including those providing hardware, electronic, electrical, barber, laundry and eyecare services.


PETALING JAYA: The Penang state government has disallowed hairdressing shops from operating during the federal enforced Movement Control Order (MCO) despite the green light given by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI).

State Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said today the decision was made by the Penang Security Council Committee (JKKN) which he chaired in the morning.




“State government had also looked into over 95 per cent public feedback, which highlighted their concern over the matter.

The meeting also took note of the social distancing factors and also a possibility of it triggering a new (Covid-19) cluster.

“Hence the JKKN meeting decided that the state has the right to not follow the Federal Government’s decision on the matter.

“We urge Putrajaya to reconsider their decision for the safety of all,” he said in a statement, reported by the New Straits Times Online.
