PETALING JAYA: Eateries and other businesses in states under the conditional MCO can now operate until midnight, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He added that the change in operating hours would be effective immediately.

On driving schools being allowed to operate again, he said that discussions have been conducted with the Transport Ministry to determine the SOPs needed.
