NSC Says Dine-In Allowed For All In Phase 3 – Khairy Says Otherwise
A set of new SOPs were released by the National Security Council (NSC)(MKN) earlier today stating that everyone – including non-vaccinated people, were extended dine-in privileges.
This comes after the long-awaited news of Klang Valley entering Phase 3 of the National Recovery Program.
This statement was later disputed by Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, wherein he clarified via Twitter that dine-in privileges will only be permitted for individuals who have satisfied vaccination requirements.
