If you miss getting tipsy at bars or having ladies’ night with your girls, you might have to wait a little longer as pubs, bars and clubs will not be allowed to operate anytime soon.
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri said on 17 May that pubs, bars and clubs are categorised as entertainment outlets and will not be allowed to operate during the conditional movement control order (CMCO), reported Malay Mail.
He said this in response to claims that these places had resumed operations and stated that they will take action if they find any that are open.
“If there are any that are opened, we will inform the local authorities and they, including Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), will take the necessary steps to order their closure,” he said during his press conference.
“For these outlets that have remained opened, there is no compromise as they are subjected to the lists of restricted activities prohibited.”
This is in line with the standard operating procedures (SOP) for the CMCO provided by the National Security Council (NSC) where business premises that have a large number of customers at a time are prohibited from operating.
About two weeks ago, Seoul, South Korea was reported to be at the brink of a second wave on infections after an infected man went club hopping in three locations before testing positive for the virus.
17 new infections were later reported to be linked to the man, and an additional 16 infections confirmed in Seoul in the following hours.
This resulted in 2,100 nightclubs, hostess bars and discos closing down while anti-virus measures including distancing, temperature checks, keeping customer lists and requiring employees to wear masks have been enforced in the country.
