KUCHING, Jan 17: The number of passengers allowed in private vehicles in Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) zones in Sarawak is based on the capacity of the respective vehicle.

Under the latest CMCO standard operating procedures (SOPs) released by the National Security Council (MKN), the number of individuals travelling on the roads are not restricted as in MCO areas.

However, individuals who are at high-risk of infection and children are not encouraged to be out at public, open or crowded places.

Public transport services such as public and express buses, LRT, MRT, ERL, monorails, ferries, planes, taxies or e-hailing services are allowed to operate as usual whereby the operating hours are based on their licences.

List of businesses allowed to operate under CMCO from 6am to 10pm.

Food delivery services, on the other hand, are allowed to operate from 6am to 10pm only during the CMCO period from Jan 18 to 31.

The same rules apply to daily business premises namely supermarkets, shopping centres, retail stores, markets, bazaars, gas stations, laundries, pharmacies and clinics while restaurants and eateries may accept dine-in and takeaways.

In the meantime, owners of these premises are urged to always ensure customers check in either manually or through the MySejahtera app with their names, contact numbers, body temperatures and time of visit recorded.

Social distancing of one-metre must be observed at all times and when necessary, the number of customers in the premises at one time should be controlled.

Yesterday, Sarawak announced that all districts other than Sibu would be under CMCO from Jan 18 to 31 while Sibu has already commenced its MCO period on Jan 16.

Zones under CMCO include Kuching (Kuching, Samarahan, Serian), Sri Aman, Sarikei (Sarikei, Betong), Mukah, Kapit, Bintulu, Miri and Limbang. — DayakDaily
