IPOH (Bernama): Essential service workers in four sub-districts in Perak that have been placed under an enhanced movement control order are no longer required to furnish health screening test results to enter and exit the areas.

Perak police chief Comm Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said they were only required to present either a valid work pass or an employer's authorisation letter.

"Prior to this, the standard operating procedure (SOP) stipulated that any essential service workers living in enhanced MCO areas and work outside must undergo a health screening first at the closest health clinic.

"In accordance with the latest SOP, health screenings are no longer required, ” he said in a brief statement Sunday (May 22) night.

The four sub-districts in Perak currently under an enhanced MCO until June 4 are Mukim Pengkalan Hulu in the Hulu Perak district; Mukim Taiping in the Larut, Matang and Selama district; Mukim Hulu Kinta covering Ipoh, Lahat, Chemor and Tanjong Rambutan in the Kinta district; and Mukim Hulu Bernam Timur in the Muallim district.
