With the COVID-19 situation in the country still not under control yet, Malaysians are beginning to feel restless after being locked up at home for so long.
However, if you've received both your vaccination doses, some good news might be coming to your way soon.
Good news coming soon?
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri told New Straits Times
that the government will very soon announce a new set of rules and exemptions for fully vaccinated Malaysians.
The announcement will be made after the Hari Raya Aidiladha celebrations of Tuesday (20 July), Ismail Sabri said.
He added that the COVID-19 Vaccine Supply Access Guarantee Special Committee (JKJAV) is currently analysing the matter and the result will be discussed in the National Recovery Council soon before making a final decision.
"As announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, we will provide some flexibility for the people who have received both doses of their vaccine.
"At the moment, the technical committee is looking into the details such as who will this new flexibility apply to, how far they get to travel or which type of business will also be allowed (to operate).
"God willing, this will be announced after Hari Raya Aidiladha," he was quoted as saying.
More flexibility for fully vaccinated individuals
While the authorities did not provide any additional information on the more 'relaxed' standard operating procedures (SOPs), Muhyiddin did mention previously
that those who've received both doses of vaccination will be given more freedom and flexibility.
According to Muhyiddin, relaxing the rules could serve as a benefit or incentive to get vaccinated.
The relaxation of the rules could include permission to go shopping or cross districts under the current movement control order (FMCO), Muhyiddin added.
Guess we'll just have to wait for the announcement and see what 'good news' the government has for us.
