KUALA LUMPUR: Children are allowed to leave homes to go to playgrounds, restaurants and shopping malls but parents should avoid bringing them to crowded places to prevent the risk of contracting Covid-19.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said while there was no rules preventing children from going out, parents are reminded and encouraged to keep them safe at home, since children are a high-risk group for the disease.

“Parents will not be punished for bringing their children along to playgrounds, restaurants or shopping malls. But they are advised against heading to crowded areas or confined spaces where social distancing cannot be observed.

“Although playgrounds and malls are now open, the standard operating procedures (social distancing, use of hand sanitisers and wearing face masks) must be observed at all times.

“Parents have to care for their own children’s safety. Ensure they are taken care,” he told a press conference today.
