SHAH ALAM, Sept 30 — A total of 8,150 individuals have registered as participants in the Selangor Mega Job Fair 2020, which will take place in Shah Alam on October 3.
Selangor Youth, Sports Development and Human Resource Development Committee chairman Mohd Khairuddin Othman said the attendance of the participants will be conducted in phases to avoid congestion at the entrance.
“Only 400 visitors are allowed into the premise at one time to enable us to practise social distancing,” Mohd Khairuddin said when contacted.
He said the organiser will also follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) which includes temperature checks, placement of hand sanitisers and reminders to wear face masks.
“We will also cooperate with authorities such as the police and the Malaysian Volunteer Corps Department (Rela) to ensure the SOPs are followed and the programme runs smoothly,” said Mohd Khairuddin.
