The government has allowed for more Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) relaxations in Phase 2 and 3 states, according to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said that the Special Pandemic Management Committee meeting also made the following resolutions:
- Official government and private functions including inaugurations and workshops, are allowed in Phase 2 and Phase 3 states, provided guests have received complete vaccinations and 50% capacity of the premises space, while 100% full capacity for Phase 4. For unvaccinated individuals, need to undergo a pre-event test using a self-test kit (saliva) witnessed by the organizer or confirmation from a medical practitioner before attending.
- Opening of skills training sector and industrial training centres including vocational colleges, TVET etc. in all phases in compliance with SOPs in line with the opening of institutes of higher learning (IPT) starting 15 October 2021.
- Allow spectators/supporters to attend sports and recreational venues in the state Phase 2, Phase 3, and Phase 4. This attendance includes before, during and after sports and recreational events provided, spectators/supporters have received complete vaccinations, wear facemasks throughout the match as well as no eating and drinking activities while in the stadium. Children under the age of 18 are not allowed to watch a match at the venue of a sporting event.
The Prime Minister recently announced that starting 1 October, Klang Valley (Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Putrajaya) and Melaka will transition to PPN Phase 3 while Kedah will move from Phase 1 to Phase 2 – the last state to make the switch.
With this, he said, there are no more states under Phase 1.
The government to be strict on people who break quarantine order
Ismail Sabri also mentioned that the government is taking seriously the issue of a handful of individuals moving about outside of their homes despite undergoing a Home Surveillance and Observation Order (HSO), and added that those found guilty will have to face consequences.
These irresponsible actions can invite security risks to the community as well as affect the government’s efforts to deal with this epidemic.Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob
