PUTRAJAYA: Interstate travel restrictions will be relaxed for married couples living in different states starting Monday (June 1), says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (pic).

The Senior Minister (Security) said the decision was made during a Special Ministers' Meeting on Saturday (May 30), after consulting the police.

"Prior to this, interstate travels are only allowed for work matters and emergency cases, such as death and medical reasons.

"However, we are allowing married couples living in different states to be reunited starting Monday," he told reporters during the daily briefing on Saturday.

Ismail Sabri reminded the people to abide by the standard operating procedures stated during the conditional movement control order (MCO).

"I believe the compliance rate to the conditional MCO is high for the past few days, contributing to the reduction of positive Covid-19 cases.

"If self-regulation among the public continues, it is not impossible for the conditional MCO to end sooner than scheduled," he said.
