KUALA LUMPUR — The Malaysian government has reimposed the conditional movement control order (CMCO) in Selangor and Wilayah Persekutuan for two weeks starting October 14.

Senior Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the decision to reimpose the CMCO was after obtaining recommendations from the Health Ministry, following the rise in positive Covid-19 cases reported in several localities such as Klang, Petaling and Gombak.

“To curb the spread of the outbreak, the National Security Council special meeting held on Monday (Oct 12) has agreed to put Selangor, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya under the CMCO effective midnight 12.01am from October 14 until October 27,” he said in his daily security briefing.

Under the CMCO, Mr Ismail Sabri said this meant that all religious, sports, education and social activities are prohibited.

“Inter-district travels are also not allowed but exceptions could be given to employees travelling on work purposes which they must produce in the form of their work passes and authorisation from their employers,” he said.

Other restrictions included limiting only two people from each household to purchase groceries.

Apart from Selangor and Wilayah Persekutuan, Mr Ismail Sabri also said the government has decided to impose the CMCO on the entire Sabah state. NEW STRAITS TIMES
