As revealed in the latest relaxed SOPs announcement, nightclubs will start to reopen 15th of May onwards after a long COVID-19 hiatus. However, there are still rules to be adhered to, in order to avoid future COVID-19 outbreaks.
According to David Gurupatham, the co-founder of the trade coalition Industries Unite as reported by Free Malaysia Today, "The likely SOPs are that there will be no dancing and perhaps a situation where we will have to implement crowd control to make sure it's not too crowded," he explained further by saying, "We don't want any sudden spikes which could lead to clubs being closed again."
In short, the "no dancing, no-close contact" rule shall be implemented along with the reopening of nightclubs in Malaysia. Nightclub owners are also encouraged to impose capacity limits, as prevention is always better than cure.
