The Health director-general declared that 1 July saw ‘0’ new cases and with that confidence he said it is possible to break the chain.

Taking a leaf off DG’s statement, Tourism Perak CEO Nurmalis Musa said, “And we intend to break the chain with our conformity exercise.”  She said this after conducting conformity visits to several hotels around Ipoh adding, “In Perak, we are proud to announce to Malaysians, their safety is our prime concern.”

After presenting the certificates, during the press-meet, she explained the purpose of Tourism Perak moving forward with the conformity exercise and the importance of espousing the SOP as a new lifestyle norm for travellers besides product and services providers. She also remarked that during her rounds she took note of the fact that the various city hotels not only adhered to recommended SOPs by the state but also performed well in execution and delivery. 


A total of 6 teams comprising 18 members from Tourism Perak and several related NGOs spanned the city to conduct the first SOP conformity tests. The first phase of the compliance exercise covered over 20 hotels with plans to cover the rest in Ipoh over the next few weeks. Tourism Perak intends to send the invigilating teams to cover hotels and product destination outside of Ipoh soon.
