Only certain business sectors are allowed to operate during the newly-announced 2021 MCO (Movement Control Order).
Here is the full list of businesses that are allowed to operate during the 2021 MCO!
2021 MCO : Not All Business Sectors Are Allowed To Operate
With daily highs in COVID-19 cases, the Prime Minister of Malaysia announced the imposition of the much stricter MCO / PKP lockdown of these states and territories.
- Kuala Lumpur
This MCO / PKP 2.0 lockdown will start from 12:01 AM on Wednesday, 13 January 2021 and tentatively end on 26 January 2021.
During this 2021 MCO / PKP lockdown, people are expected to work from home, except for critical business sectors.
In MCO areas, only up to 30% of Management staff can be present in the office at any one time.
The number of support staff and production workers will be determined by the employer, based on the strict adherence to the SOP.
