"There must be #SocialDistancing in restaurants and eateries, but there is no fixed number of people allowed to sit at every table," says Malaysia's Senior Defense Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
“As long as there is social distancing, it is possible. If a long table can fit 10 people, then 10 people are allowed. The issue is social distancing.”
He said this when asked if the SOP stating that a maximum of 4 people were allowed to sit at any one table in eateries also applied to big tables.
“If there’s a big table that can fit 10 people, it doesn’t make sense for (only) 2 people to sit there. There are no restrictions on this,” he added.
Ever since the RMCO on 9 JUNE, restaurants and other eateries have been allowed to operate up to midnight.
