Interstate travel and tourism will be allowed again if 90% of Malaysian adults are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Special Committee on Pandemic Management announced yesterday.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, also the chairman of the committee, said that the target could be achieved in two to three weeks.
He also believed that the relaxation will restore the country’s economic excellence, as he shared on his Facebook yesterday.
Meanwhile, other decisions were also announced by Ismail Sabri yesterday.
The readjusted operation hours for these businesses will be from 6 A.M to 12 A.M, effective today.
Among the operations allowed are as below.
Also, all businesses are now allowed to operate at 100% capacity, given that all the staff are fully vaccinated.
Johor will be moving to Phase Two, Pahang to Phase Three and Negeri Sembilan to Phase Four of the NRP.
Additionally, Malaysians who arrive in Malaysia can undergo the RT-PCR swab test for free whereas foreigners will have to bear the cost of the test.
He added that the government urge people benefiting from the relaxation to be responsible and disciplined.
As always, everyone should comply with all standard operating procedures (SOPs), wear a face mask, practice physical distancing and take care of their health and safety.
Stay safe and take care, everyone!
