Malaysia’s movement control order (MCO) has been extended from 19 February until 4 March in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Johor, and Penang according to Defence Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

All other states in the country with the exception of Perlis will be placed under the conditional MCO.

The current extension of the MCO will mean that by the end of the scheduled MCO, KL and Selangor would have been under the MCO for 52 days, beginning 11 January 2021.

There will however be an ease in restrictions. Dine-in at eateries would be based on capacity after taking into account at least one metre of physical distancing – which means that more than two people can dine at the same table.

The 10km travel radius ban will also be lifted, but the ban on inter-state and inter-district travel remains.
