State housing and local government committee chairman Ayub Jamil (pic) said according to the standard operating procedures issued by NSC, a premises is allowed to operate at 60% capacity if its vaccination rate reached 40%.
Premises with a 60% vaccination rate are authorised to function at 80% capacity, and up to 100% capacity if 80% of the workers are fully vaccinated.

“We hope this green light would help boost the manufacturing economic sector in Johor,” he added.
