There is nothing quite new with the Sarawak MCO SOPs when it was released today. In fact, it does look similar to the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) which was used prior to this.
However, there are some slight changes noticed noted as I listed below.
Sarawak will be undergoing the Movement Control Order (MCO) from 29 May 2021, with Sarawak intending to lower down the number of Covid-19 infections within its borders.
The MCO will see movement of the general public highly restricted with the police and armed forces doing roadblocks and checks to ensure the SOPs are followed.
Below is the latest Sarawak MCO SOP by the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC), as released by UKAS.
The MCO should be lifted on 11 June 2021 if the infection rate in Sarawak can be controlled.
What’s important in the Sarawak MCO SOP
Here’s the important points from the SOPs:
- There’s a curfew from 10PM – 5AM
- Shops can only operate from 6AM – 8PM
- All sectors will need to reduce their in office workforce by at least 70%.
- No outdoor activities
- Kids below 12 not encouraged at public places
- Only 3 person in one car
- No movement between zones unless with police permit
Hopefully this MCO will work and the number of Covid-19 infections will go down soonest.
