PM announces gradual reopening of certain economic sectors starting May 4

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhiyiddin Hassin has announced that the nation will be put under a Conditional Movement Control Order.

Certain economic sectors starting May 4 will be reopened gradually in accordance to health SOPs.

Entertainment outlets, cinema, karaokes and night bazaar markets however will not be allowed as physical distancing is hard to manage.

Non-contact sports and exercise such as jogging will be allowed to resume either individually or in small groups of less than 10 as long as social distancing will be practiced.

However, religious gatherings including Friday prayers will remain banned. Interstate travelling is still not allowed.

The Prime Minister in a televised address also announced that schools will remain closed.

As for working hours, employers have been encouraged to practice staggered working hours to prevent employees to be in the office at the same time.
