Fully vaccinated individuals who live in regions under Phase 1 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) will be able to dine in from Aug 20.

Rules on recreational and sporting activities have also been relaxed. Fully inoculated individuals in these regions can now go fishing, hiking, camping, cycling, and play golf, badminton (singles) and tennis (singles).

Caretaker prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin said these new relaxations were granted because 50 percent of the adult population nationwide had been fully vaccinated, along with other positive indicators.

Here are the detailed SOPs for all states and territories (regardless of which NRP phase they are in):
