Selangor Police To Intensify Roadblocks To Curb Interstate Travel

Effective from (7 December 2020), Malaysians will be able to cross states and districts nationwide without the need for police permits, Ismail Sabri announced in the same media conference on Saturday (5 December 2020).

According to a report by Bernama, this excludes the areas under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO).

Ismail Sabri added that the government has also agreed that all vehicles are allowed to carry the number of passengers according to their permitted capacity from today.

“Police will also remove roadblocks from Dec 7 but would focus on compliance with the standard operating procedure (SOP),” he added. 

Ismail Sabri also noted that the standard operating procedures (SOP) for the tourism sector and the Work From Home (WFH) directive will be reviewed, following the announcement of the lifting of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in several states. 

According to a separate Bernama report, he said the matter would be scrutinised, with further discussions needed to identify permitted tourism activities.

As for WFH directive, the National Security Council (NSC)would discuss with the International Trade and Industry Ministry as well as the director-general of the civil service to examine the need to continue with it.

At the same time, the issue of the use of face shields in public places without face masks will be discussed with MOH.

Currently, permission to use face shields in public places was only granted for students at school, to reduce the burden on parents.
