In light of the announcement made by the Prime Minister on Labour Day, Proton expects to reopen its sales and service outlets on 5 May 2020. However, it should be noted that this applies to outlets situated in green and yellow zones only, which will be based on requirements of all relevant authorities.
All premises and personnel will be subjected to strict safety protocols guided by the National Security Council (NSC) of Malaysia to curb the spread of Covid-19.
At the time of writing, there are 10 red zones in Malaysia – Petaling, Hulu Langat, Gombak, Kepong, Lembah Pantai, Titiwangsa, Johor Bahru, Kluang, Kuching, and Kota Samarahan.
Production operations at Proton’s plants in Tanjung Malim and Shah Alam will also be gradually resumed, and so too will the corporate office at the Centre Of Excellence (COE). However, new work practices will be adopted to minimize infection and contact.
“Proton will begin the gradual resumption of all its business activities. However, the safety of our customers and employees is our main priority and in line with the Prime Minister’s calls to adopt a 'new normal', we will introduce a new set of protocols in all areas,” said Dr Li Chunrong, Chief Executive Officer of Proton.
