Construction works in Yangon Region will be allowed to continue if they follow the guidelines of the COVID-19 disease prevention and control (Version 4.0) issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports and the 18-point examination form of the Yangon Region Construction Supervision Committee, according to Deputy Director-General for the committee and the Department of Urban and Housing Development.
The responsible person of the construction project needs to submit the photographs of compliance with the committee’s 18 inspection rules and a declaration of compliance with the version 4.0 issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports to the Yangon Region Construction Supervision Committee in order to resume the project.
Joint secretary of the Committee U Myo Myint said the project would be allowed to resume as soon as the submission is completed. He added the important rules must be followed, and if there is no compliance with the set rules or if it is found due to a complaint or an unexpected inspection, the project will be temporarily closed.
The Yangon Region Construction Supervision Committee was formed on 4 May with the aim of ensuring that the construction works continue, that the people in the construction sector are protected from the pandemic and timely treatment in the situation of an outbreak of COVID-19.
There are over 400 construction projects submitted to the committee, and over 100 of these were granted the permission to resume.
The set 18 inspection rules and the Version 4.0 to be followed at the construction sites can be checked on the Yangon City Gallery Facebook Page, Yangon Regional government website, the Ministry of Health and Sports’ website, Ministry of Construction’s websites, Department of Yangon Region Urban and Housing Development’s Facebook Page and Construction Business Associations’ websites. — Min Thit (MNA) (Translated by Ei Phyu Phyu Aung)DSC 0486 72 scaled
