The National Security Council (MKN) has clarified that travel between Kuala Lumpur and Selangor is permitted under the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO)

This was confirmed in a message on the official MKN Telegram Channel following Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob's announcement regarding the end of the Movement Control Order (MCO) in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Johor, and Penang.

The message read, "As implemented during MCO 1.0, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, and Putrajaya are considered one zone."

However, travel into Putrajaya requires a permit as it is a Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) area

The reason behind this restriction is to "protect Putrajaya from the spread of COVID-19."

MKN explained that movement from Selangor or Kuala Lumpur into Putrajaya still requires a police permit except for those who have letters from their employers.

Social events such as weddings, birthday parties, and gatherings will also be allowed throughout the CMCO

During the press briefing yesterday, 2 March, Ismail Sabri said, "The social events include wedding receptions, engagement ceremonies, aqiqah, doa selamat and tahlil events, birthday celebrations, reunions, retreats, and others. For wedding receptions, it is extended to non-Muslims couples as well."

Premises in CMCO areas can have up to 50% of patrons based on its capacity. Meanwhile, events in RMCO areas can have any number of patrons as long as the requirement for physical distancing is fulfilled.
