Strict clampdown on travel among new SOPs to be enforced during MCO 3.0

PETALING JAYA: The National Security Council (NSC) has released a detailed list of uniform standard operating procedures (SOP) that will be enforced during the latest movement control order (MCO) from Wednesday (May 12).

The interstate and inter-district travel ban continues during the nationwide MCO, while police, army, civil defence and Rela personnel have been assigned to enforce movement restrictions in Covid-19 hotspots.

The passenger limit in private vehicles, taxis and e-hailing vehicles is three per car including the driver, while public transport services are allowed to operate based on capacity with operating hours subject to licence conditions.

Those with vaccination appointments are allowed to travel to the vaccination centres, provided that they can show the proof of their appointment via the MySejahtera app or SMS.

Movement between MCO areas is allowed for emergency purposes, with police permits, and natural disasters.

All education institutions under the purview of the Education Ministry are closed for a period of four weeks from May 12 to June 7, while private students are allowed to attend exams on the premises according to their schedules.

University students who need to return to campus must obtain a permission letter from their university to cross state or district borders.

All physical Teaching and Learning (PdP) activities are not allowed except for students in need, until a date to be informed by the government.

Students who are in boarding schools, universities or institutions are allowed to return and proceed with hybrid learning.

The movement of students returning to dormitories or educational Institutions will be made in stages as the ministry decides.

Private sector offices have been allowed a maximum of 30% management staff to be physically present at the workplace, while the number of operational or support staff allowed will be determined by the employer.

Shopping malls, supermarkets or department stores are allowed to operate with strict SOPs, while children aged 12 and below are discouraged from being in public places, except for emergencies, medical treatment and education activities.
