LOCAL councils have been posting notices on their social media platforms to alert the public on what they can and cannot do since the latest movement control order was announced.
There are also notices on revised business hours, guidelines and procedures for online transactions as well as ways to lodge complaints.
Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) posted a graphic on its social media platforms to notify the public on the type of businesses in Selangor that were allowed to operate during MCO as well as the permitted operating hours.
However, the graphic was removed to allow for amendments due to several changes.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob later announced that self-service launderettes and optical shops were allowed to operate.
These businesses listed as essential services were given the green light to operate by the National Security Council (MKN), International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) and Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry.
Companies involved in the retail, wholesale and distribution aspects of businesses that are allowed to operate during the MCO will need to apply for a registration confirmation letter from Miti’s Covid-19 Intelligent Management System portal via https://notification.miti.gov.my
Most businesses are allowed to operate from 6am to 8pm.
