Relaxation of travel restrictions for those with two vaccine doses – interstate travel and dine-in with conditions now allowed.
In his latest address, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has announced some conditional flexibilities under the current Movement Control Order for individuals who have completed two doses of the vaccine in this country. According to him, this flexibility is given by the government so that the people can gradually return to normalcy in their daily lives.
Upon meeting the criteria, the following flexibilities are allowed regardless of the various National Recovery Plan’s Phases:
The easing of restrictions takes effect from the 10th of August 2021, and the National Security Council will release further guidelines of current travel allocations in due course.
Members of the public are urged to register and get their vaccines at the soonest to enjoy the new flexibilities. There are a number of walk-in vaccinations in the Klang Valley if you have not received a vaccination appointment through the MySejahtera portal.
The Prime Minister also said that the government, in its entirety, has been mobilised and is working with the private sector and non-governmental organisations to ensure Malaysia’s population can be vaccinated as soon as possible, and the spread of the virus curbed, especially in the case of the newer and more virulent Delta variant.
With regard to dining-in, the PM has advised the public to only choose it as the final option. He also urged restaurants and food operators to ready outdoor eating areas as locations with better ventilation also help curb the spread of the virus. Strict SOPs must be followed at all times.
