GEORGE TOWN: The state government will hold back the implementation of the conditional movement control order (MCO) to May 8
Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said although it was necessary to restart the economy, the state could not take the risks by completely relaxing the MCO.
"There will be three phases. From May 4 to May 8, businesses involved will take the time to disinfect their premises and get their guidelines in check before reopening.
"The state is preparing the guidelines from May 4 to May 8, further updates will be given soon after.
"The next phase will be from May 9 to May 12 and then May 13," he said in a press conference on Sunday (May 3).
He added that from May 13, all sectors would be allowed to operate following standard operating procedures (SOPs).
