The Federal Government will soon announce whether it will reinstate the work-from-home (WFH) directive for civil servants for Selangor following its decision to implement the Movement Control Order (MCO) in six districts.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the International Trade and Industry, meanwhile, would make the necessary announcement involving employees in the private sector.

The WFH policy was implemented among government agencies and private companies during the first MCO in March last year, while during MCO 2.0, only 30 percent of employees in the management group were allowed to be in the office.

Meanwhile, the number of employees required at any one time for employees in the support group was left up to the respective employers.

Six districts in Selangor have been placed under an MCO from May 6 following spikes in Covid-19 cases for the past two weeks.

The decision to put Ulu Langat, Petaling, Gombak, Klang, Kuala Langat and Sepang under MCO until May 17 was done after consulting with the National Security Council and Selangor state government.

The MCO rules will apply during this duration with shops and eateries allowed open till 12am, pharmacies and petrol stations till 10pm while Ramadan bazaars can still operate with the final say left to the respective state governments.

Apart from that, there will be no interdistrict nor state travel allowed for people living in these districts except for emergencies.

Any area under an MCO is not allowed to have people gathering in public for long periods of time, hence the no dine-in rule.
