Starting tomorrow (February 19th), the number of passengers allowed to travel per vehicle will be based on the size of the respective vehicle.
Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the new rule will be enforced in areas under the Movement Control Order (MCO), as well as the Conditional (CMCO) and Recovery MCO (RMCO).
Also, more diners will be allowed to dine-in at restaurants, in MCO, CMCO, and RMCO areas, depending on table size.
Datuk Seri Ismail also said Muslim couples affected by the MCO will be allowed to hold their marriage solemnization ceremonies at religious offices and mosques.
However, the number of attendees must be capped at 20.
Meanwhile, Malaysia’s COVID-19 death toll has risen to 1,030, after 25 patients succumbed to the virus, the highest number of daily fatalities to date.
