KUCHING: Eateries operating in the state are now allowed to open from 6am until 10pm, said the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC).

The revised operating hours is in line with the federal government’s decision to extend the operating hours of eateries beyond 8pm as part of the National Recovery Plan’s movement control order’s (MCO) standard operating procedures (SOPs).

SDMC said the new directives will take effect beginning today (June 29).

“As the number of daily Covid-19 cases is still high, the MCO is extended with the following SOP improvements effective June 29, namely the operating hours of eateries are fixed from 6.00am to 10.00pm,” it said in its daily statement on Monday (June 28).

Apart from that, SDMC said bookstores and stationery outlets are also allowed to open in accordance with the operating hours set for the service, economic and industrial sectors.

“Additionally, individuals or groups of people are not allowed to be in public areas from 12.01am to 5am without a reasonable excuse,” it added.

Earlier last Sunday, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Phase One of MCO under the National Recovery Plan, which was scheduled to end yesterday (June 28), will be extended.

He said this is because the number of Covid-19 cases in the country has not dipped below the threshold value of 4,000 required to move to the next phase.

Muhyiddin added that phase one was to test the country’s resilience so that it could go through all the PPN phases smoothly.
