Senior minister for security Ismail Sabri Yaakob in a press conference today said the six districts are: Hulu Langat, Petaling, Gombak, Klang, Kuala Langat and Sepang.
The remaining three districts, Kuala Selangor, Sabak Bernam and Ulu Selangor will remain under conditional movement control order (CMCO).
This follows a drastic increase in Covid-19 cases in the state recently.
Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin previously announced that the government will no longer resort to such “blanket orders”.
Instead, he said lockdown restrictions will be implemented on a targeted basis and within restricted localities from now on.
Currently, Kelantan is the only state with all districts under MCO. – FREE MALAYSIA TODAY
Six S’gor districts to be placed under MCO for 12 days – Ismail Sabri
Six districts in Selangor will be placed under a movement control order (MCO) for 12 days starting May 6, announced Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The districts affected are Petaling, Hulu Langat, Gombak, Klang, Kuala Langat and Sepang which will be under the movement restriction from May 6 to May 17.
This came after the National Security Council (NSC) scrutinised a proposal brought by Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari and the Selangor NSC in a meeting today.
Interstate and interdistrict travel between these districts and outside these areas are not allowed except for work and emergency matters, Ismail said.
He added that economic activities are still allowed in these districts, while social activities are not permitted.
According to the senior minister, the decision came as these districts in Selangor saw a sharp increase in Covid-19 cases.
The remaining three districts – Kuala Selangor, Sabak Bernam and Ulu Selangor – will continue to be under the conditional MCO.
