This listing of Kuching business operation hours intends to help those in Kuching during the Movement Control Order (MCO) which was enforced from 18 March 2020.
On 10 April 2020, Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin announced the MCO would be extended to 28 April 2020.
He further announced another extension on 23 April 2020, hinting another extension is likely when the two weeks extension expires on 12 May 2020.
As many have known, businesses are allowed to open from 7AM – 7PM daily, but most businesses that are allowed to open have adjusted their operation time accordingly.
That said, here’s the operation time for businesses around Kuching which will be open during this MCO.
