Following the rise in positive COVID-19 cases in several localities in the country, the federal government has reimposed the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in Selangor and Federal Territory. This will come into effect starting 14 October 2020.
The decision to reimpose the CMCO was based on recommendations from the Health Ministry after rising positive cases in Klang, Petaling, and Gombak.
Under the CMCO, all religious, sports, education, cultural, wedding receptions and social activities are banned.
All schools, higher learning institutions, skills training institutes, kindergarten, nursery, tahfiz centres, public parks and recreational parks will be closed.
Similar to the previous CMCO, dine-ins at all eateries will be disallowed, with only drive-through, deliveries and take-aways permitted.
Additionally, inter-district travel is not allowed. Exceptions can be given to employees traveling on work purposes. However, this must be supported in the form of work passes and authorisation documents from employers.
Beyond that, the CMCO also limits a maximum of two people from each household to purchase groceries.
The Government has said that all economic activities in Selangor, Putrajaya and WP Kuala Lumpur will be allowed to operate normally with a more detailed standard operating procedure (SOP) that will be announced by the National Security Council (NSC) soon.
As reported by The Malay Mail, Senior Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that the government has decided to impose the CMCO on the entire Sabah state.
Today, six new clusters were identified in the Federal Territories including Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, followed by Sabah, Selangor, and Johor.
There were 563 positive cases reported today alone with two fatalities. Total active cases stand at 5,039 out of overall 16,220 cases to date. Total deaths stand at 159.
