Govt counters in EMCO areas closed

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

Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Zuki Ali (pic) said the closure order was exempted for health services, police stations and at international entry points which involved the operation of Customs, Immigration and Quarantine.

Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob had announced the implementation of the EMCO in several sub-districts in Selangor and several localities in Kuala Lumpur from yesterday until July 16.

“In line with this, the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the operation of government offices in the affected areas would use 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 yesterday.

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