May 4 is the first day of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), as announced by the Malaysia Prime Minister on May 1. CMCO is a loosen version of MCO where restaurants are allowed to operate in restricted operating hours and dine-in service is granted with strict Standard Operation Procedures (SOP) to follow.
A Facebook user (Yogeswaran Chelliah) posted a 1.30-minutes-video on Facebook, featuring the Mamak store’s employees, showing the SOP of dine-in, step by step.
According to Sin Chew Daily, this video was shot by one of the Mamak employees, who is also the narrator of the video. As shown in the video, all customers must wear face masks, queue at the entrance of the Mamak to wait for their turn to enter the store.

After entering the store, the employee will measure their body temperatures and they will have to fill in their personal details. After completing these few steps, they will then proceed to wash their hands with soaps prepared and go to their dine-in seats.
As in the video, tables are 2 meters apart and some seats were marked ‘X’, which indicates that they cannot be seated there to maintain social distancing.
This video has garnered 40k views and 1.4k shares, at the time of writing.
Good job, ah neh! Let’s all follow the SOP strictly and together we can win this war against COVID-19!
