Under Phase One of the National Recovery Plan (NRP), the government has agreed to allow 11 more sectors to operate from Monday (August 16) which is tomorrow. During a press conference earlier today, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin stated that this would be subject to the previously stated criteria and SOPs, which included the need that their clients be completely vaccinated.
The following are the 11 businesses that can resume their operations:
- Car wash
- Electrical and electronics
- Household goods and kitchen utensils
- Sports equipment
- Car accessories
- Car distribution and sales
- Morning markets and pasar tani
- Clothing and fashion accessories
- Barbers and beauty salons (for basic barber services only)
Photographic equipment and services, flowers and nurseries, handicraft and souvenirs, antiques, toys, carpets, creative content and equipment, outdoor equipment, cosmetics, skin care, perfume, tobacco and vape shops are among the businesses which are involved in the list.
In addition, manufacturing, construction, and mining and quarrying businesses can all reopen in all states. This follows the government’s decision to waive several SOPs for those who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 vaccination.
