Inter-district travel still not allowed in Kuching

Inter-district travel in Sarawak, including Kuching, is still not allowed, unless one has permission from the police.

This means one can’t head to Serian or Samarahan, if they are from Kuching, and vice versa.

According to a news report carried out by UKAS, individuals wanting to cross district boundaries will still be required to obtain a letter of approval or permit to do so from nearby police stations.

Sarawak police commissioner, Datuk Aidi Ismail told UKAS that Sarawak has been given the exemption to not allow inter-district travel just yet by the Malaysian Ministry of Health.

“The Sarawak government has been given the exemption by the Malaysian Ministry of Health to not allow inter-district travel.

“This was due to the worry that individuals from the city will go back to their respective villages and spread the virus to the villages.” he said to UKAS.

It was also reported that starting Sunday, 44 roadblocks were operational from 7AM.

Kuching is set to observe the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) this 12 May with to continue its goal to reduce Covid-19 infections.

The CMCO will therefore see most business premises operating with strict Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) intact.
