GOMBAK, 7 November 2020: The conditional movement control order (CMCO) recently imposed in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya will now be implemented in all states in Peninsular Malaysia, for four weeks from 9 November until 6 December, except for three states, namely Perlis, Pahang and Kelantan.
Senior Minister (security cluster), Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob told a press conference today that the CMCO has to be carried out due to the spikes in COVID-19 cases in Peninsular Malaysia which reported a relatively high increase every day.
He said,”Under the CMCO, the standard operating procedures (SOPs) will need to be observed, including the limit for two persons to go out to buy provisions, no traveling across the county or state are allowed, and those having to bring a leaving for work purposes must carry letters from their employer.”
“The SOP for CMCO will remain the same as announced ealier,” he added.
He said, movement in and out of districts and states will not be allowed except for emergency cases and needs to get police permission.
“For employees who need to cross the district, they need to show a work pass or letter of permission from their employers. Only two persons from the household are allowed to go out to buy necessities,” he said.
“Meanwhile, individuals at high risk and children are not encouraged to go out to open and crowded public places. All schools, institutions of higher learning, skills training institutes, kindergartens, nurseries, tahfiz centres will be closed,” he added.
Reviewing the case, yesterday alone the country recorded 1,755 cases of new COVID-19 infection. This is the highest number recorded so far. Whatever happens, all Malaysians are asked to be vigilant and adhere to the SOP set to reduce the risk of contracting the virus from spreading. ***
