PUTRAJAYA: The standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the sub-district of Klang which was earlier placed under conditional movement control order (MCO) have been cancelled, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said since Selangor was now under conditional MCO, those in the sub-district of Klang would now follow SOPs enforced for the whole state.

“The SOP for Selangor is now applied to those in the sub-district of Klang. The previous SOP has been cancelled, ” said Ismail Sabri on Thursday (Oct 14).

Klang was placed under conditional MCO along with three other red zone areas in Sabah – Papar Sandakan and Tuaran – starting Oct 9.

The government has imposed the order on Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya effective Wednesday (Oct 14).

On Tuesday (Oct 13), Ismail Sabri listed the do's and dont’s for those affected by the conditional MCO in the three areas, assuring the public that activities in the business, economic and industrial sectors would be allowed to continue throughout the period.

This includes allowing restaurants, food stalls, food trucks, kiosks, food court, roadside hawkers, convenience and grocery stores to open for business starting from 6am to 10pm.

Food premises are encouraged to provide take-away, delivery and drive-thru services. However, dine-in is also allowed but is limited to only two persons per table.

Since there is no shutdown involving the public and private sector, transport services including express buses, LRT and stage buses will be allowed to operate.

Taxis and e-hailing services can take a maximum of two passengers, while delivery services will be available from 6am to midnight.

Operating hours for wet markets are from 6am-2pm, farmers market from 6am-noon and pasar malam (night markets) from 4pm-10pm.

Private and public clinics and hospitals can provide 24-hour service, while operation hours for pharmacies and drugstores are 8am-11pm.

The economic and industrial sector in the affected areas are allowed to proceed with strict compliance with the SOPs, while vehicles providing services to these sectors can make their journey as usual, including inter-state and inter-district travels.

Fisheries, plantations and agriculture sectors, as well activities related to them, are allowed to operate as usual. The same applies to airports and ports.
