Tourism businesses in the country have new standard operating procedures (SOP) in place to embrace the new normal for sanitised travel post Covid-19, says the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (Matta).

Among some of these measures are disinfection of tour vehicles, strict personal hygiene among tour guides, sanitisation of luggages and reducing full capacity in tour buses by 50% to maintain social distancing.
