MITEC’s comprehensive venue SOPs include continuous staff training, public awareness and multi-media displays, social distancing measures at public areas and event venues, MySejahtera QR code for e-health screening and declaration form, temperature checks, hand sanitisers, ISO 22000 advanced food safety measures, routine surface cleaning, reduced touchpoints, air quality control and daily monitoring systems.
