McDonald’s finally opening!!

Yep, you can now get your McDonald’s cravings satisfied after a long wait 🙂

Starting today, most McDonald’s will resume operation. However, just like any F&B outlet, you cannot dine-in. Only available for dabaos, drive-thru, and delivery.

Do take note that outlets located in parks, tourist attractions and some schools will still be closed.

In addition, no more 24/7 McDonald’s! Dessert kiosks and McCafe counters will remain closed. (Because McDonald’s need to follow Singapore’s CB rules!)

McDonald’s also asked for the patience of their customers when their food takes longer than usual. This is because they have asked their senior staff to stay at home and have lesser manpower than usual.

McDonald’s also sought the understanding of its patrons to comply with safe distancing measures and cooperate with their staff on the necessary precautions taken.

And, just a gentle reminder from McDonald’s that there is no need to rush for anything because they always have our back 🙂 🙂

False positives cases?!

MOH revealed that 33 previously confirmed cases from a laboratory were false positives because of “apparatus calibration issues for one of its test kits” 😨

After retesting, tests from the National Public Health Laboratory came out to be negative.

MOH reassured the public that there were no false negative results and immediate actions were taken to rectify the issue.

For now, the laboratory has stopped all tests and is working to resolve the calibration issue.

Malaysia extends Movement Control Order till 9 June

Malaysia is extending the MCO for the 4th time till 9 June as they have seen the results of the MCO, according to PM Muhyiddin Yassin.

94.4% of the states in the country are categorised as green zones, aka areas with no new infections for 2 weeks.

What’s different during the 4th extension is that places of worship are allowed to open. However, the specific SOPs have yet to be released.

Private gatherings of up to 20 people are allowed for celebrations, but strict SOPs must be observed. This includes wearing masks, social distancing and practising personal hygiene like washing hands and using hand sanitisers.

Do remember to wear masks when you’re out so that we can both help ourselves and the healthcare sector! If you’re in need of masks, we sell masks and thermometers, so just drop us a message at +65 9457 2440 or call +65 6358 4231 😉
