ALOR SETAR: Kedah is the second state after Sarawak which will not implement the conditional movement control order (MCO) on Monday (May 4).

Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir (pic) said the implementation would be postponed until a decision is made by the state's Covid-19 special security committee meeting on May 5.

"The state government will scrutinise the requirements and guidelines of the conditional MCO announced by the Federal Government," he said in a statement on Saturday (May 2).

Mukhriz said the state government would study the implementation of the conditional MCO to ensure it is suitable for the needs of the state.

He said the state government was committed to maintain Kedah's green zone status and to ensure that the people in Kedah are safe from the virus.

"There is no compromise on the safety and welfare of the people. In the meantime continue to stay at home and practice social distancing," he said.

Kedah was the third state, after Perlis and Kelantan, to be declared as green zones, with zero active Covid-19 cases.
