The government has decided to allow eateries and convenience stores to remain open until 12 am everyday as we enter Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) phase.
Requests from restaurants
Security Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri made the announcement during his daily press conference on Tuesday (9 June).
He said that after reviewing requests from those running food businesses and convenience stores, the government has decided to allow the extended operation time.
"However, social distancing and other SOPs that has been put in place must be followed fully," he said.
