The interstate travel ban has affected our livelihood tremendously. Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, however, shared some good news yesterday (May 30), especially for married couples who are living in different states. They can finally travel interstate to see each other! Woot!
He explained that the decision was made after the Special Ministerial Meeting with advice from PDRM. He elaborated, as reported by The Edge Markets,
“Crossing between states is still not allowed except for work, and emergencies such as death or medical treatment.”
Married couples can travel interstate to meet their partners but they need to obtain approval from the police first. So if you need to travel for work, an emergency or to see your spouse, you can do it beginning tomorrow (1 June)!
However, what caught netizens attention was the tweet from Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia after the announcement was made. In a tweet, KKM said which loosely translated to “To those who are single, please be strong and patient, your time will come!”
Here are the two conditions:
Bagi mereka yang masih bujang atau single, bersabarlah kerana giliran anda pasti akan tiba nanti.
Teruskan patuhi arahan pihak berkuasa dari semasa ke semasa .

Although the announcement can be seen as good news for some of us, please adhere to the SOPs ok? We should not take things for granted and always choose to prioritize the safety of ourselves and everyone around us.
