Total lockdown: Only two people allowed to go out within 10km radius for essentials


PETALING JAYA: Only two people per household are allowed to go out to buy essentials or seek medical services, with movements limited to within 10km from one’s residence starting Tuesday (Jun 1), says Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Sports and recreational activities are limited to only jogging and exercises that do not involve physical contact, and these are only allowed from 7am to 8pm.

All work permission letters issued by the International Trade and Industry Ministry are also only valid up to Monday (May 31) and no longer be valid starting Tuesday (Jun 1).

When the total lockdown starts, the permission letter for work will be issued by the respective Ministries, he said.

He said kindergartens and nurseries are not allowed to operate except for those catering to the children of frontliners and parents who are both working.

Ismail Sabri said all private kindergartens, as well as at international schools and for expatriates are also not allowed to operate.

The work permission letters from the International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) issued to employees are no longer valid effective June 1 and will be replaced with permission letters from the relevant ministries, said Ismail Sabri.

The Senior Minister said that the letters can no longer be used effective June 1 and permission letters for cross-district will instead be issued by the relevant ministries.

“If it relates to the agriculture sector, the relevant ministry will issue the permit,” he said in his joint press conference on Sunday (May 30).

Ismail said that Senior Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof will chair a coordination meeting with the relevant ministries on Monday (May 31) to discuss the matter.
