PM: SOP relaxations for the fully vaccinated to be announced within two days


PAGOH: The relaxation of the standard operating procedures (SOP) for those who are fully vaccinated will be announced within the next two days, says Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

He said it would be an announcement eagerly awaited by those who have been fully vaccinated.

“I too have completed my two doses but am still being restricted as we have yet to announce any easing of restrictions such as interstate or inter-district travel to allow people to see their loved ones.

“We will decide on that including other social aspects that people wanted such as allowing dine-in where families can have dinner together.

“Once the announcement has been made, restaurants or food outlets can make the necessary preparations,” he said when met after presenting aid and visiting a mobile community vaccination programme at Felda Batu 27 Lenga here on Thursday (Aug 5).

Muhyiddin added that besides travelling and dining-in, the easing of restrictions for those who have completed their doses would include allowing people to carry out sport activities.

“People can play tennis, badminton, golf or even go to the gym but this is still being considered by the National Security Council (NSC),” he said.

Muhyiddin however reminded that even with the relaxation, the public should always continue to be vigilant against Covid-19.

“The country is still yet to achieve herd immunity as some are not fully vaccinated,” he said.
