PUTRAJAYA,  April 13  — Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has decided not to allow barber shops, optical shops, as well as hair and beauty salons to operate during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said all forms of Ramadan bazaars will also not be allowed to operate during the period.
