Interstate travel

I once again remind Malaysians that Interstate travel is not allowed, with the exception of four reasons I have previously mentioned, namely, emergency, death, work and long-distance spouses. There are no other exemptions.

Construction sites

Over 4,000 construction sites are still closed despite the partially lifted restrictions.

Nonetheless, inspections were carried out by the Construction Industry Development Board on 6,000 sites.

934 sites were found to be in full compliance with the Health Ministry’s standard operating procedure (SOP),  while 224 sites did not and were issued warnings.
