All food delivery service providers allowed to operate during Ramadan


OVER 40 companies providing e-hailing and fast food delivery services are allowed to operate as usual during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period in Ramadan.

In fact, Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said food vendors in rural areas and small towns using the delivery service of other companies or individuals could also do the same.

However, he said all their delivery riders will be required to register with the local authority and undergo health screening at any public or private clinic to ensure a clean bill of health.

“This is among the requirements to ensure health and safety of all quarters, including the customers.

“We want to ensure their health and safety because they are the ones who will deliver the order to the customers who, of course, the will see face to face. For their own good, we asked them to undergo the screening,” he told the daily press conference here today.
