KOTA KINABALU: There will be no changes in the standard operating procedure (SOP) currently in place despite Sabah being reverted to conditional movement control order, says Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun (pic).
The state Covid-19 spokesman said prior to this, the state was under recovery MCO but has since being placed again under CMCO from April 29 to May 17.
Masidi said the state government had decided to maintain the same SOP for the sake of economic recovery.
"We want to expedite efforts to rehabilitate the economy," Masidi said on Wednesday (April 28).
The issue of new SOP for Sabah was expected under CMCO as widely spread in social media platforms, but Masidi put the speculation to rest with the announcement to retain all current SOP.
"It is business as usual. There will be no change. Whatever SOP and guidelines in place will continue.
"But the interdistrict travel ban that is restricted to six zones remains in place," he said.
Due to rising cases of Covid-19 with more red zones in Sabah, the Federal Government reverted Sabah's status from RMCO to CMCO with effect from April 29.
There were 33 localities under enhanced MCO with most affected areas in the east coast districts of Tawau, Kalabakan, Kunak, Lahad Datu, Kinabatangan and Sandakan.
