CMCO in Sabah extended till Nov 9

KUALA LUMPUR: The conditional movement control order (MCO) imposed in Sabah will be extended until Nov 9, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister (Security) said the conditional MCO for Sabah was initially fixed for Oct 13-26.

“However, the Health Ministry has been recording a sharp spike in Covid-19 cases in the state following targeted tests. So the government has decided to extend the conditional MCO there until Nov 9, ” he said yesterday.

He also announced that two areas in Sabah – Taman Semarak and PPR Balung in Tawau – would be put under enhanced MCO from Oct 26 to Nov 8.

“Both areas involved 4,266 houses and 21,470 residents. All of those involved must adhere to the SOP.”

These include not being allowed to leave the area except for medical emergencies or deaths, with residents required to have prior police approval.

“All schools, mosques and other houses of worship will be closed during the enhanced MCO period.

“Sundry shops will be allowed to operate from 6am to 6pm while recreational and sport activities are barred.

“The Health Ministry will conduct targeted tests on residents while food supply will be coordinated by the state disaster management operations centre, ” Ismail Sabri said.
