KUALA LUMPUR, May 5 — In order to mitigate the risk of Covid-19 infections only individuals who are categorised as “Low Risk” in the MySejahtera app will be allowed into shopping, health and judicial premises.

As for nurseries, they are allowed to operate as usual as long as they have permission from the authorities. Parents can also travel in their vehicles to pick and send them to and fro.

Additionally, no official or unofficial programmes, be they government or private, weddings, engagements, birthdays, reunions, retreats, gatherings and things of that nature will be allowed during the MCO.

This includes meetings and individuals from outside the MCO areas. All meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions are also banned.
