All govt services remain operational under CMCO


ALL government services will remain operational throughout the implementation of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur (KL) and Putrajaya from Oct 14 to Oct 27, said Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Zuki Ali.

In a statement, Mohd Zuki said civil servants will adapt to a rotation system and work from home, based on the requirement.

He said heads of departments are required to comply with the Public Service Department Circular “JPA. SARAAN (S) 256/6 / 31JLD.6 (6)” dated May 2, 2020, for the purpose, and use their discretion and due consideration in the best interest of their staff’s health and welfare.

They should also ensure all safety and health standard operating procedures (SOPs) are fully complied with such as performing body temperature screening, practising physical distancing, and using face masks and sanitisers.

“This will also apply to any other areas declared as being under the CMCO,” he said. Mohd Zuki said online applications should also be prioritised to minimise physical presence at offices or over-the-counter services.

He added that the National Security Council (NSC) would be issuing more detailed SOPs in the future.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob yesterday said the Special NSC Meeting agreed to implement the CMCO in Selangor, KL and Putrajaya after receiving advice from the Ministry of Health and taking into account the increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in districts such as Klang, Petaling and Gombak.
