Keep to SOP, economic sectors told

PETALING JAYA: All economic sectors in the six Selangor districts under the movement control order can operate as usual in accordance with the existing standard operating procedures, says the International Trade and Industry Ministry.

It said the government had agreed to allow all economic sectors, including the manufacturing sector, to operate, except for activities under the “negative list” of general SOP for MCO 3.0.

Under the “negative list”, the National Security Council (NSC) has put spas and reflexology centres as not being allowed to operate.

The ministry said earlier work-from-home orders which allowed only 30% of management to be in the office at any one time would be applicable in these areas.

“The general SOP for MCO 3.0 is based on the protocols of the existing MCO, except that no dine-ins are allowed at restaurants.

“This SOP can be accessed on the NSC’s website at

“Companies must adhere to the MCO 3.0 SOP and abide by the work-from-home ruling, which is 30% of the management can attend office while the attendance of supporting staff will be decided by employers, ” said the ministry in a statement yesterday.

The ministry also urged the industries to work with the government on the early warning system of Hotspot Identification for Dynamic Engagement (HIDE) to be put in place.

“HIDE can identify high-risk locations which are the source of infections.

“This step is more targeted and more effective in controlling community infections, rather than a complete lockdown.

“Companies that do not follow the SOP will face legal action as well as temporary shutdown of their operations, ” it said.
