Putrajaya has announced the relaxation of several rules for those who have been fully vaccinated from Aug 10.

This included allowing couples in long-distance relationships to travel and meet each other as well as parents to visit their children below the age of 18.

Those who have been fully inoculated can also pray in suraus and mosques, Prime Minister Muhyidin Yasin said in a special televised address

Non-Muslims who have been fully vaccinated are also allowed to pray in their respective houses of worship and must show their digital vaccination certificates before entering.

Malaysians and non-Malaysians with residences in the country will only need to quarantine at home.

Inter-district travel will also be allowed for fully vaccinated individuals in states under Phase 2 of the national recovery plan.

“They are required to show their Covid-19 digital certificate to authorities at roadblocks to prove that they have been fully inoculated.”

Dining in at eateries will also be allowed for fully vaccinated individuals in states under Phase 2 of the NRP.

But due to the higher risk of one getting infected as patrons have to unmask, Muhyiddin advised the public to only dine-in when necessary and not spend too much time at the eatery.

“If possible, opt for take-away and select premises which are either open air or have good ventilation.”

He also advised eatery owners to provide more tables outside the premises to ensure better ventilation.

They must also ensure that their patrons produce their digital certificate before allowing them in.

Muhyiddin said permission to dine in also includes restaurants or cafes in clubhouses.

However, changing rooms and bathrooms at clubhouses will remain closed to avoid any gathering.

He listed now permissible non-contact individual sports to include jogging, taichi, cycling, skateboarding, fishing, equestrian, archery, tennis (single), badminton (single), golf, and motorsports.

Under Phase 2, domestic tourism within the state is allowed, and hotels and homestays may reopen.
