Govt counters in EMCO areas closed

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Government service counters in areas under the enhanced movement control order will be closed even though they were ordered open nationwide from July 1.

However, the Chief Secretary to the Government, Tan Sri Mohd Zuki Ali (pic) said the closure order was exempted for health service, police station and at international entry points which involved the operation of customs, immigration and quarantine.

"Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has announced the implementation of EMCO in several sub-districts (mukim) in Selangor and several localities in Kuala Lumpur starting today (July 3) until July 16.

"In line with the directive, the standard operating procedures (SOP) for the operation of government offices during EMCO in the affected areas would be using the directive on the operation of government offices issued on May 30 (Operation of Government Offices during Phase One of the Movement Control in the National Recovery Plan),” he said in a statement Saturday.

In a statement on May 30, Mohd Zuki said the civil service would fully implement work from home (WFH) policy following the announcement of the first phase of the nationwide lockdown of the social and economic sectors.

He said the directive was aimed at reducing face-to-face contacts of individuals to prevent the spread of Covid-19.- BERNAMA
