RMCO extended until Dec 31 – Muhyiddin


The Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) has been extended until 31 December 2020, said Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin (picture).

According to him, with the extension of the RMCO period, enforcement action under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988, or Act 342, could still be taken.

“This is to ensure that all parties comply with the Standard Operating Procedures and health protocols set,” he said in a special message on the latest developments of RMCO which was broadcast on local television.

On June 7, the Prime Minister announced the implementation of RMCO to replace the Conditional Movement Control Order after Malaysia successfully curbed the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
