The Sarawak government had decided to retract their decision to allow food sellers to do business until 10PM during Ramadan.
The retraction meant that individuals and businesses will only be allowed to operate until 7PM as previously set by the government.
It was further added that food sellers are encouraged to join e-bazaar Ramadan, through online platforms, such as Helpy Services, Grab and Food Panda, to sell food online during the fasting month of Ramadan.
The statement released by the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee also encouraged those interested to sell food during the month of Ramadan to register with their respective local councils and authorities.
Ramadan is usually when Ramazan Bazaars are opened during evenings to sell a variety of food and drinks to fasting Muslims.
The government had previously canceled all Ramadan bazaars due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, in the rest of Malaysia, all businesses will operate from 8AM – 8PM.
