Conditional MCO: Music, Quran teachers allowed to teach one-on-one sessions from Saturday (Nov 28)

KUALA LUMPUR: Music and Quran teachers in conditional movement control order (MCO) areas are allowed to teach from Saturday (Nov 28) provided they have one-on-one sessions, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said the government understands the grouses of such teachers, thus the Special National Security Council (NSC) meeting decided to allow them to teach.

"They can only do so provided they have one-on-one sessions.

"The NSC is also looking at other things such one-on-one tuition classes with standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the NSC and the Health Ministry. However, it will be decided later," he said during his daily briefing Friday (Nov 27).

Meanwhile, for cub prix motorsports in conditional MCO areas, Ismail Sabri said the special NSC meeting is maintaining its decision not to allow it to operate.

"We understand that the race is participated by those who are adequately separated.

"However, we are concerned about possible gatherings or assemblies before and after the races thus we are still maintaining the decision not to allow such sports," he added.

Ismal Sabri urged motor racing associations to make a formal application and propose SOPs for before, during and after the races.

"Make a formal application and we can look into the matter in a more detailed manner," he said.
