Muhyiddin : 14-day MCO From 13 January 2021 – Bars Travel More Than 10km – Work From Home & Eateries Only Allow Takeway

  • Compulsory To Work From Home
  • 2 Person Maximum Inside Car
  • Cannot Travel More Than 10 KM
  • Cannot Travel To Other District
  • Restaurant & Food Outlets ( Only Can Take Away )
  • All Business & Company ( Compulsory To Allow Worker To Work From Home )

As for sectors or services that are not listed as essential services, Muhyiddin said the work from home order will be in force.

“All employers must comply with this order to reduce movement within the community, especially in areas with high density. Only with this move, we can reduce the risk of Covid-19 infections in the workplace,” he said.

Eateries and hawker stalls will only be allowed to provide takeaway services if they are located in MCO areas, but will be allowed to operate as usual in CMCO and RMCO areas. Food delivery services will also be allowed to operate.

He said supermarkets, health services such as clinics, hospitals, pharmacies and banks will also be allowed to operate in MCO areas with SOP required to be complied, adding that: “If there is no immediate or urgent need, no need to leave home. Stay at home.”

Six states will come under a 14-day movement control order (MCO) from Wednesday, following the recent surge in Covid-19 cases, prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin has announced.

The six states are Selangor, Penang, Melaka, Johor, Sabah and the federal territories of KL, Labuan, and Putrajaya.

All social activities in these states are off, including Thaipusam, Chinese New Year and group sports activities. All cross-border travel will also be forbidden.

A conditional MCO (CMCO) will be imposed on Pahang, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah, Terengganu and Kelantan.

Muhyiddin said the government understands the concerns of the people and the burden shouldered by frontliners.

“Our health system is at a breaking point,” he said, adding that public health facilities could no longer support 2,000 cases a day.

“The government realises a stricter approach must be taken to break the chain of infections and lower the number of daily infections.”

The government will reintroduce the interstate and inter-district travel ban nationwide beginning January 13 as part of measures to contain Covid-19 infections.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin made the announcement today, in a live television address.

He also said that residents in states going under the movement control order (MCO) will be restricted to a 10km radius of their homes.

“Only two household members are allowed to go out and be in the same vehicle. Any individuals who violate this order can be issued a RM1,000 compound,” Muhyiddin announced.

The return of movement control order (MCO) in Malaysia from January 13 until January 26 will mean that only five economic sectors deemed essential are allowed to operate but with only 30 per cent of management staff allowed at the workplace.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today said the five essential economic sectors are factories and manufacturing, construction, services, trading and distribution, as well as plantations and commodities.

He said these sectors are allowed to operate as they support work to supply essential needs such as food, drink and household goods and self-care goods, personal protective equipment (PPE), medical tools and medicine for healthcare workers, international trading activities, and to ensure the supply chain is not interrupted, as well as supporting clinical infrastructure and emergency work.

“However, only 30 per cent of employees in the management group are allowed to be in the office, while the number of employees required at any one time for employees in the support group will be decided by the respective employer,” he said in a special address today.

He also said employees physically present at their workplaces must continue observing the standard operating procedures that are in place.
