MCO in Sarawak from Saturday (May 29) includes curbs on late-night outings

KUCHING: People in Sarawak will not be allowed in public spaces from 10pm to 5am without a good reason during the statewide movement control order which comes into effect on Saturday (May 29).

According to an infographic of standard operating procedures (SOPs) released by the state Public Communications Unit on Friday (May 28), people may go out for medical treatment and to get food supplies, daily necessities, medication and dietary supplements.

They can also go out to get their Covid-19 vaccination.

Sarawak decided to impose the two-week MCO until June 11 as the state's health facilities were at a critical level from the spike in Covid-19 cases and the detection of variants of concern.

According to the SOP, essential services and related activities are allowed to operate during the MCO period.

Official duties may also be carried out.

However, interstate and inter-zone travel remain prohibited without a police permit.

Private vehicles can carry no more than three people while public transport capacity is reduced to 50%.

Children below 12 years of age are not allowed to go to crowded, public and open areas without a good reason.

Other prohibited activities include face-to-face meetings, corporate events, tourism and cultural activities and sports activities.

Gyms, cybercafes, massage services, spas, reflexology and wellness centres and pedicure and manicure services are among the sectors not allowed to operate during the MCO.
