CMCO: 10km restricted travel withdrawn

KUALA LUMPUR (March 4): With the conditional movement control order (CMCO) taking over from the MCO today, people will now be allowed to travel beyond 10km radius from their homes to buy groceries, food or for medical treatment, Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Ismail Sabri Yaakob clarified today.

However, they are still not allowed to do interstate travel freely.

"Police have given the four-day interstate travel schedule (for people to return to work from the respective hometowns) from May 7 to 10.

"If we look at the rule, interstate (travelling) is still not allowed. So the four days are the only exemption from the rule," Malaysiakini reported Ismail saying.

Those who have missed the travel dates have to apply and obtain approval from the police, said the minister

"They have to report to the police to obtain the police's approval for their trip. This is up to the discretion of the police," he said.

The police had stated that people who registered to travel interstate on the Gerak Malaysia app won't require an approval as long as they keep to the provided schedule.
