The government recently announced that fully vaccinated people in the Klang Valley can start dining in at restaurants again
All you need to do is make sure that you've passed the 14-day mark after the second dose of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca, or Sinovac vaccine.
Meanwhile, for those who received the Johnson & Johnson or CanSino vaccine, you'd have to wait 28 days after your jab.
Then, you'll have to flaunt your vaccine certificate to restaurant staff before entering the outlet.
And just like that, you can enjoy a meal at your favourite food spots again.
However, not all restaurants have opened their doors to welcome fully vaccinated folks and many people are still hesitant about eating out in public
Thankfully, a Twitter user has compiled a list of eateries in the Klang Valley with vaccinated employees to put some of your worries at ease.
On Wednesday, 25 August, Twitter user @fruhrzf, whose real name is Farah Aiman Razif, wrote, "I understand dine-in hesitancy. Hence, this is a thread I compiled of restaurants that are open for dine-in with fully vaccinated staff (*1 dose if stated) in Klang Valley. Feel free to suggest more if you know! For more information, you can check [the] link."
Her tweet has since garnered over 1,100 retweets and 1,000 likes.
Farah told SAYS that the idea came to her as she struggled to find a database that listed down all the restaurants with fully vaccinated employees.
She said, "I got the idea to make a list because the government made it mandatory for customers to be fully vaccinated but not for the food service employees. Which, for me, seems counterproductive in the effort to curb COVID-19 cases. So, I decided that I would only dine in at restaurants with fully vaccinated staff."
"I tried looking up online for any database available but there was none. So, I started just building the list for my own reference. I literally just wanted to have banana leaf rice and some drinks with my friends," the 24-year-old added.
She then elaborated that she will try to update the sheet more as time goes by, but she is also busy juggling her full-time job as an auditor.
"So I'm trying to find a way to help businesses with fully vaccinated staff to log their information and streamline the process," she said.
Farah's impressive list includes the full addresses of these restaurants and even notes whether they are halal-certified or not.
