Selangor is enforcing a mask mandate on food and beverage handlers, which will include all workers at restaurants and eateries from 1 January 2023.
This measure, according to the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS), is a directive from the Selangor state government.
In a Facebook post, MPS said the directive is being put in place to ensure cleanliness.
The mandatory mask order will result in compounds if it is violated.
It is also among the conditions set for an operating licence to get approved, MPS said.
Based on some of the comments on the post, many appeared unhappy over the new ruling.
Malaysia previously relaxed its mask mandate as the country entered the transition to endemicity phase.
It is still required aboard public transportation, at hospitals and health facilities as well as encouraged in crowded places.
The Kajang Municipal Council made the same announcement several days ago, saying the wearing of face masks by those who handle food was to ensure the safety and cleanliness of the foods served.
