Senior Minister: Restaurants Can Now Sit More Than Four People Per Table

Say hello to a big crowd.


After more than three months, things are slowly returning to normal.

Gym and parks have now reopened, restaurants and cafes can now open their doors as per usual and public transportation can now operate at full capacity.

And just recently, it was announced that you can have a meal with your family and friends without sitting at seperate tables.

But T&C apply, of course

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has announced that the government will be lifting the four-people-per-table rule at all restaurants starting Wednesday (17 July).

According to Malay Mail, more diners can now sit together at a table in a restaurant, but there's a catch though: the table must be big enough to accomodate them and maintain social distancing at the same time.

You can now share a table with random strangers.
Ismail said in his press briefing that it "doesn't make sense" for two people to sit in a table meant for ten, and restaurants can choose to sit more people at a large table, providing that the standard operating procedures (SOPs) are observed.

“It is possible, so long as appropriate social distancing is maintained," he was quoted as saying.

Prior to the annoucement, the National Security Council stipulated that only a maximum of four people are allowed per table.

You know the SOP, you guys; always maintain social distancing and wear a mask if you want to head out for a nice meal.
