The National Security Council (MKN) has agreed to allow more retail shops to operate and for dine-ins to be allowed at restaurants from Wednesday, says Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Ismail Sabri said the decision was made to ensure the sustainability of retail businesses such as clothing and accessories, car accessories, handicrafts, children’s toys, and sports equipment.

“Among the SOPs that need to be complied with is that premises owners must sanitise their respective premises three times a day, require their employees and customers to wear face masks at the premises, and ensure those with temperatures above 37.5 degrees Celsius are not allowed to enter.

“Clothing shops need to provide gloves to customers, cosmetics outlets can only carry out retail activities, no ‘testers’ allowed,” he said during his press conference on the Movement Control Order (PKP) here today.

On the permission to dine at restaurants, Ismail Sabri said it was limited to two customers per table, and operators must ensure physical distancing is observed at the restaurant and that customers have recorded their details.

He said more details on the SOP can be found on MKN’s website.
