PUTRAJAYA: A list of standard operating procedures has been released to be observed by those residing in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, which has been put under the conditional movement control order (MCO) starting on Wednesday (Oct 14).
While inter-state and inter-district movements involving areas under the conditional MCO are not allowed, those facing emergencies such as health and death can do so with police permission.
Workers will be allowed to make inter-district or inter-state journeys to and from work provided that they have permission letters from their employers and staff identification cards as proof if they are stopped at roadblocks.
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said during this period, the government hoped that employers would allow their employees to work from home.
Travellers from other states who need to cross Selangor and Kuala Lumpur to reach destinations not affected by the order are required to seek police approval before making the journey.
Likewise, Ismail Sabri said those who need to make a journey via flights at KLIA, KLIA2 and Subang Airport are also required to seek permission from the police for travel to the airport.
Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya will be placed under the conditional MCO for 14 days until Oct 27.
“Only two persons per household will be allowed to leave the house to get food supplies and other essential needs. Individuals who are in the high-risk category as well as children are encouraged not to be in public, open and crowded places during this time, ” he said on Tuesday (Oct 13).
