The recent announcement about dine-ins allowed from today (20 August) for those fully vaccinated came as a pleasant surprise to some but for many, the relaxed SOP is a disaster waiting to happen.

While this gives restaurants a chance to start making money for the time they’ve lost remaining closed for diners, many of the ones we’ve come across have made the decision NOT to open for reasons that money can’t buy.

Popular burger joint myBurgerLab (mBL) took to their social media last night not only to announce that they will not be opening for dine-ins but to state their reasons WHY.

In summary, one of the main reasons behind mBL’s decision was due to unclear SOPs and for the safety and sanity of both staff and customers.

Other eateries have also followed suit like Japanese restaurant Hayazushi.

Date night favourites La Risata Bar Pizzeria Ristorante:

Rata Subang, who was slapped with an RM10,000 compound back in June for accidentally breaking SOPs, and looked forward to the day they could welcome their customers back, have decided there will be no dine-ins until the 1st of September when all their staff will have completed their second Covid-19 vaccination.

Even McDonald’s have decided they are not ready for dine-ins! Except in selected states like Perlis, Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan.

Netizens agree

Although the decision for some places to remain closed to dine-ins may mean you need to scrap your weekend social plans with friends and family, many people applaud the judgement call.
