The latest SOPs have caught many off-guard, not least restaurateurs. From August 20 onwards, restaurants in Kuala Lumpur are allowed to resume dine-in services for fully vaccinated individuals.
To attain the status of fully vaccinated, it must have been 14 days after the person has received the second dose of a two-dose vaccine. For single-dose vaccines, it is 28 days after the inoculation. Patrons are also required to observe SOPs and present the digital vaccination certificate embedded in the MySejahtera app.
Several restaurants have announced their intentions to reopen for dine-in, while many more have decided to persist with takeaway and delivery services.
Rest assured these restaurants are also implementing precautionary steps to ensure your wellbeing remains their utmost priority. If you are fully vaccinated and less apprehensive about dining out at restaurants, ring them up to reserve a spot.
