If you recall, we were not allowed to travel more than 10 kilometers away from home, during the first Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in May.
However, the rule no longer applies this time around.
During his daily press briefing yesterday (October 15th), Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob explained that the public is allowed to travel more than 10km, as long as it’s within the boundaries of the same administrative district.
“For example, if you are travelling from Cheras to Bukit Bintang, or Taman Tun Dr Ismail to Bukit Bintang, this is still within the same district,” he said.
However, Ismail reminded that inter-district travel is only allowed for work purposes and buying essential goods, and also that only two people are allowed to travel per vehicle.
Meanwhile, people from other states who want to travel through Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya can obtain the movement permit application form from the nearest police station or download it via the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) official Facebook page.
Many Malaysians have been left confused with the new CMCO ruling, as the district borders implied in the inter-district travel ban were never specified.
Please be reminded that the CMCO lasts till October 27th, and do try to stay home as much as you can!
