Eateries allowed to operate until 6am during Ramadan — Ismail Sabri

KUALA LUMPUR (April 12): The government will allow all restaurants, stalls, eateries, including coffee houses in hotels, as well as fast-food shops and food delivery services in states under the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) and Recovery MCO to operate until 6am during the Ramadan fasting month.

Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said this was to enable those fasting, especially those who are single, to purchase food for their pre-dawn meals (sahur).

However, he said for eateries in shopping complexes or supermarkets, they would be subject to the operating hours of the said premises.

“The government received various applications from the people regarding the purchase of food, especially involving single people. Previously, these eateries or stalls were only allowed to operate until midnight or according to the conditions set in the licence issued by the local authorities. 

“This means eateries can now continue to operate until pre-dawn meal (sahur) time and those fasting can buy takeaways from or eat at the shops that are open,” he told a media conference today.
