It looks like we are back to square one again as the government has just announced that Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Putrajaya will be placed under Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) effective midnight Oct 14.

According to the News Straits Times, the decision was made by the Health Ministry after cases continued to rapidly increase across several districts within the Klang Valley namely Klang, Petaling and Hulu Langat.

Senior Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that the CMCO will start to come into effect at 12.01 am Oct 14 until Oct 27.

The rules that apply during CMCO are:

  • Inter-district travelling will be barred during this period and workers would need to show their work pass or a consent letter from their workplace which allows them to work from one district to another.
  • Only 2 people will be allowed from each household to buy daily essentials.
  • All schools, higher learning institutions, skills training institutes, kindergarten, nursery, tahfiz centres, public parks and recreational parks will be closed.
  • All mosques and non-Muslim houses of worship will be closed.
  • All sports, recreational, social, cultural and wedding receptions are not allowed to take place and entertainment centres and night clubs are not allowed to operate.

However, all economic activities in Selangor, KL and Putrajaya can proceed as usual with a more detailed standard operating procedure (SOP) to be announced by the National Security Council soon.

We really hope the next 13 days for this temporary CMCO will flatten the curve once again, let’s all work together and this time harder, to stop the spread of the virus.
