Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya will transition to Phase Two of the National Recovery Plan (PPN) effective Friday (Sept 10). He said the decision was made at the COVID-19 Pandemic Management Special Committee meeting today.

According to him, the relaxation was the same as that for states that had transitioned to Phase Two previously, including allowing cross-district travels for fully vaccinated individuals.

“Long-distance married couples who have been fully vaccinated are allowed to cross states, while parents who have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine jabs are permitted to cross states to meet their children aged below 18,” he said in a statement.

Ismail Sabri said that dine-in for fully vaccinated customers was also allowed, while tourism activities were only allowed in the same state for those who have completed two doses of the vaccine jab.

Ismail Sabri said the committee also decided that Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya would be merged as one COVID-19 infection area and, as such, interstate travelling was allowed while there would be no more roadblocks.
