Karaoke centres in Malaysia will now be allowed to reopen starting from July 15th.

This move comes after nearly 4 months of closure since Malaysia’s Movement Control Order (MCO) took effect on March 18th.

The announcement to ease restrictions was made earlier today by Malaysia’s Defence Minister, Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, adding that the government took into consideration the livelihood of some 3,000 staff members in the sector.

Aside from Karaoke centres, family entertainment outlets such as game arcades, fun fairs, children’s’ gyms, and theme parks will also be allowed to reopen.

Despite the ease of restrictions, all outlets are required to adhere to standard operating procedures, such as performing body temperature checks and registrations prior to entering the premises.

Bars and clubs however, are still prohibited from reopening.
