KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia will enter phase one of the transition into the endemic phase of the Covid-19 pandemic starting April 1, allowing businesses to operate beyond 12am, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced today.

In a press conference, he said all restrictions on operating hours have been lifted and that businesses can open according to the conditions set by their respective licenses.

He said this will allow the public to eat out past midnight, while allowing 24-hour convenience stores to open as normal.

However, Ismail stressed that this is still a “transitional” period into entering the endemic phase of the pandemic, as the decision on the latter was up to the World Health Organisation.

Ismail also said the government has decided to reopen its borders starting April 1.

He said this was based on three factors: science and current facts on Covid-19, the need for reopening borders among neighbouring countries, and to reduce the burden of travellers attempting to enter Malaysia.

“Most importantly, Malaysia is an important destination that has now reopened.” – The Vibes, March 8, 2022
