KUALA LUMPUR – Foreign workers with valid permits who are currently in Malaysia can return to work when their employment sectors resume operations, says Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said the decision was subject to the condition that they have to undergo COVID-19 screening tests before returning to work.

This was decided at the the Special Ministerial meeting on the Movement Control Order (MCO) today, he said.

Ismail Sabri said apart from this, the special meeting also noted that there were still food premises that served food buffet-style without waiters or the provision of disposable gloves to take the food.

“This does not comply with the prescribed Standing Operating Procedures (SOP) and food premises operators must ensure the availability of waiters and disposable gloves for customers, if serving food buffet-style,” he told a press conference on the development of the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) at the Parliament today.
