Public areas in Sarawak off limits from 10pm-5am

KUCHING: No one is allowed to be in public places in Sarawak between 10pm and 5am without justifiable reasons starting today as the authority enforces a statewide movement control order.

According to the National Security Council’s standard operating procedure, the ban is until June 11.

Interstate and inter-zone travel are also not allowed without a police permit, while children below 12 years are not allowed to go to crowded, public and open areas, without a reasonable excuse.

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.

However, people can go out to get food supplies, daily necessities, medication and dietary supplements.

They can also leave their homes to get their Covid-19 vaccination and seek medical treatment.

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

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

Essential services include supermarkets, wet markets, hardware stores, healthcare facilities and automotive services.
