KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 26 — Putrajaya announced today enhanced movement control order (EMCO) in Putra Point, Negri Sembilan, and two localities namely Taman Mesra and Taman Mawar in Sabah starting from October 28 until November 10 there.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri added that conditional movement control order (CMCO) will also now be implemented in Nilai, Negri Sembilan starting from October 28 until November 10, as the area saw a spike in Covid-19 cases.

“The spike of Covid-19 cases in those localities saw the government implement EMCO to prevent infection and transmission of Covid-19 as well as to enable targeted case detection activities implemented over a period of 14 days” Ismail said in his press briefing.

The two localities of EMCO in Taman Mesra and Taman Mawar will affect 5,100 households involving 22,500 residents.

“However, grocery stores are allowed to operate from 6am to 6pm to give residents the opportunity to buy basic necessities,” he added.

Meanwhile in Negri Sembilan, EMCO implemented in Putra Point, Nilai saw two localities namely Jalan BBN 1/7B, Jalan BBN 1/7F and Jalan BBN 1/2E.

Nilai as a whole district will also observe CMCO starting from October 28 and apply the same standard operating procedure (SOP) as in Klang Valley.

“All social and religious activities in mosques and suraus are not allowed, except for the call to prayer and five times daily prayers with the amount determined by the state religious authority,” Ismail said.
