MARKETS, REFLEXOLOGY CENTRES AMONG SECTORS THAT ARE NOT ALLOWED TO OPERATE DURING CMCO



15 OCTOBER 2020


KOTA KINABALU: Economic sectors that are not allowed to operate throughout the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) period are night and agriculture markets, tamu, entertainment outlets as well as beauty and reflexology centres, said Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun.


Entertainment outlets that temporarily cease operation include night clubs, pubs and cinemas.


He said, there have been confusions among the public over which sectors are allowed to operate during the 14-day CMCO.


“The state government received many inquiries from the public because there have been confusions, especially on the permission to operate for all economic, industry and business sectors.


“This confusion surfaced because the standard operating procedures (SOP) for the CMCO for districts in red zones previously only allowed essential services to operate only.


“I would like to clarify that the SOP used throughout Sabah is currently based on the SOP issued by the National Security Council dated October 14," he said in a statement here, Thursday.


"The previous SOP is not applied, except for the existing SOP of the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) in 10 localities."


Masidi who is also the Finance Minister ll stated that those in the economic, industrial and business sectors no longer need to send in application to the State Disaster Management Committee (COVID-19) for permission to operate.


"In line with the implementation of CMCO throughout Sabah starting October 13, all previous CMCO instructions that involved 11 districts are automatically cancelled," he said.


On another note, he said a total of 26,178 food baskets have been distributed to the targeted groups.
