The statement reminded that visitors and store operators must continue to comply with the standard operating procedure (SOP)
"Prevention of the spread of COVID-19 is still the state government's priority," it read.
"In line with that, visitors and store operators are reminded to always comply with the SOP that is fixed by the National Security Council and to practise physical distancing."
