Malaysia’s government has announced updates for the conditional movement control order.

Key Points:

  • The conditional movement control order will be extended to Dec. 20 for Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Sabah, but not for Sabak Bernam, Hulu Selangor and Kuala Selangor.
  • The conditional movement control order has ended for Labuan, Penang, Putrajaya (with the exception of two sub-districts), Perak (but not for certain areas), Kelantan (except  for Kota Bharu, Machang, Pasir Mas and Tanah Merah), and Negri Sembilan (except  for Port Dickson and Seremban).
  • The conditional movement control order will not be restarted in Johor, but it has been for the districts of Batu Pahat, Johor Bahru, Kota Tinggi, and Kulai which are now under it until Dec. 20.
  • Areas where the conditional movement control order has been lifted will be placed under the recovery movement control order.

Background: Malaysia first extended the movement control order in March to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Analysis & Comments: The extension means movement will continue to be restricted in areas covered by the order. The response to COVID-19 continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
