UPDATE: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that a travel ban has been imposed on entries to-and-from Sabah. The article has since been corrected.


The National Security Council (MKN) has announced an inter-district travel ban for Sabah that comes into effect at 12.01 am on 3rd October.

Senior Minister (Defence) Datuk Seri Ismail Yaakob states that the travel ban prohibits anyone from travelling between districts in Sabah for 14 days until 16 October.

However, essential services such as supply needs food, medical, safety are exempted from the travel ban.

The Senior Minister says that those whose mandatory quarantine ends during this period are allowed to return to their respective districts or to the Peninsula, Sarawak and Labuan.

The Targeted Enhanced Movement Control Order (TEMCO) currently in place in four Sabah districts – Tawau, Lahad Datu, Kunak and Semporna- remains in force.
