It’s no secret that people flock to the beaches in Kuantan because of the gorgeous views, even more so now that many have discovered how instaworthy the Starbucks at Teluk Chempedak is.

To ensure that everybody remains safe while still enjoying the sights and sounds during this Covid-19 season, the authorities in Kuantan have decided to implement additional measures at Teluk Chempedak.

Effective today (7 August), Teluk Chempedak will only be allowed to see a total of 1,000 visitors at any one time on weekends to ensure that the public adheres with physical distancing procedures.

As according to Bernama, Kuantan District Police chief ACP Mohamad Noor Yusof Ali said that the new SOP will begin from 10 am to 10 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Each visitor will have to take a visitor’s card at three designated entry points.

“There is no time limit set for each visitor, but if the number of visitors exceed the limit, then we will divert the vehicles that wish to enter the Teluk Chempedak area to other places except for those who want to use the drive-through service at the fast-food restaurants there,” he said.

For those working at the popular beach, they won’t be required to take a visitor’s card.

“Workers, hawkers and shop owners in Teluk Chempedak need not take the visitor’s card, but they will be required to show their employee cards or confirmation letters from their employers at the entrance,” he added.

The three entry points are located at the Kuantan Municipal Council (MPK) parking area, the private parking area and in between McDonald’s and KFC. Other procedures include the usual checking-in using the MySejahtera app or manual registration, temperature checks and the wearing of face masks.

He also said that PDRM officers, MPK officers, RELA and the Malaysian Civil Defense Force (APM) personnel will be stationed at the entry points and around Teluk Chempedak to ensure a smooth implementation of the new standard operating procedure (SOP).

This is necessary as police inspection had found that a good 2,000 people had flocked to the beach last Saturday, causing congestion and increasing risk of infection.

It is understandable to want to go to the beach after being stuck at home for months, but it is also important to avoid crowded places at all costs.
