GEORGE TOWN (June 8): The Penang Government has taken note of the imposition of the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yesterday and will make a decision on Wednesday.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow (pictured) said for the moment the Penang government will continue with the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) until a decision is made by the Penang Special Security Committee meeting on Wednesday.

“The state government will hold a meeting of the Special Security Committee on Wednesday, June 10, to study the decisions of the RMCO and issue a further statement after that,” he said in a statement here yesterday.

He added that the gradual opening up of various sectors of the economic, social, cultural, educational and religious sectors was aimed at attaining normalisation post Covid-19.
