KOTA KINABALU: The State Government has agreed to loosen restrictions for Muslims to perform Friday and five daily obligatory prayers at all mosques and surau in the state during the movement-control order (MCO) 2.0, starting 12 February.

"This also applies to religious activities held in mosques or surau across Sabah.


"The state government has also agreed to allow houses of worship to operate with a maximum capacity of one-third of their normal capacities or not more than 45 people at any one time," he said in a statement here, today.
