When Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob went off script during the press conference explaining the additional rules for MCO 3.0 that are going to be enforced on 25 May, we were confused too. 

But now that we got our hands on the details, here is what’s important:

Almost all businesses can only operate between 8am to 8pm


  • Night market: 4pm to 8pm
  • Petrol stations: 6am to 8pm
  • Highway petrol stations: 24 hours
  • Pharmacy: 8am to 10pm

Work from home

80% of the public sector will work from home.

  • Necessary services and front line services. 

40% of the private sector will work from home.

  • 30% for management, total operational or support staff.

Public Transportation

MRT, Komuter, public buses, LRT, and other public transports will operate at 50% capacity.

  • This includes sea transportation as well.

Public sector

Public sector is also responsible for helping curb the infection.

  • Check staff and visitor MySejahtera status.
  • Limit the number of visitors and staff on the premises.

Law enforcement

Law enforcement agencies will conduct more aggressive checks on both private and public premises.

  • All law enforcement agencies with the ability to issue compounds will monitor SOP compliance in public places or places that are relevant to their duties.
  • Non- security agencies will conduct ops on weekends as well as weekdays.


  • The government will identify high-risk areas such as shopping malls and industrial areas based on the Hotspot Identification For Dynamic Engagement (HIDE). 
  • Any location that is still considered high risk after a risk and involvement evaluation will be closed immediately.
