KUALA LUMPUR: The conditional movement control order (CMCO) for Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya will be extended for another 14 days until Nov 9.

The CMCO for the Klang Valley began on Oct 14 and was scheduled to end tomorrow.

“Until now, assessments by the health ministry have found that there are still locations in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor in which there is a high risk of Covid-19 spreading,” Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob said at a press conference Monday.

“Taking these assessments into account, the government today has agreed to extend the CMCO in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor for another 14 days from Oct 27 until Nov 9. The SOPs will remain the same.”

Ismail also announced an extension to the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) in two areas in Lahad Datu, the Taman Khazanah Indah and Mutiara Kasih public housing schemes, as well as Felda Umas in Tawau.

Set to end Monday, the EMCO has now been extended until Nov 9 due to the increase in the number of cases in these three localities.

However, shops will be allowed to operate from 6am to 6pm so that residents can purchase essential items.Ismail also said two localities in Sandakan, Taman Mesra and Taman Mawar, will be placed under an EMCO from Oct 28 to Nov 10 due to the increase in cases in the two localities.

The EMCO in these two areas involve 5,100 homes and 22,500 residents.––FMT
