Its managing director Datuk Azman Ismail said checking temperature, practising social distancing including in surau and ensuring cleanliness of the entire setting including car parks were part of the new normal.

“We would like to remind travellers that in the era of the new normal, travelling on the highway will consume more time, as standard operating procedures will be fully implemented, ” he said.

PLUS food courts are now operational after being shut down for about three months following the movement restriction imposed by the authorities to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission.

Authorities have allowed interstate travel effective June 10, as Malaysia went into the recovery movement control order phase.

“We urge everyone to take precautions and look after their own safety in keeping with the government’s advice, ” he said in a statement.
