Despite easing of regulations taking place in stages currently in several countries, social distancing rules are still in place.

According to Malay Mail, the announcement was made by senior vice-president of human resources who said the company had to assess and recalibrate its cost structure. This included staffing needs, which was based on both current and anticipated future operating facilities.
