Those who are stranded in their hometowns following the March 18 movement control order (MCO) are permitted to travel back to the places where they live and work, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin announced today in a Labour Day address on TV.

He said it was not permissible to travel back to the hometowns for Hari Raya.

“Social, community and cultural events involving large gatherings such as feasts, open houses, break-of-fast meals, concerts, cultural shows, monthly gatherings of government departments and the private sector, as well as all forms of official ceremonies and assemblies are not allowed,” Muhyiddin said.

He also said religious activities such as religious marches, Friday prayers and all congregational or assembly activities in mosques, surau and houses of worship are also not allowed for the time being.

“All schools, colleges and institutions of higher learning will also remain closed,” he said.
