KUALA LUMPUR (June 7): After nearly three months in the semi lock down mode, Malaysians are now relieved that the conditional movement control order (CMCO) will finally be lifted on Tuesday (June 9), to be replaced with the recovery movement control order (RMCO) to take place from June 10 to Aug 31.

In a televised address today, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the new RMCO will allow for more activities to be carried out.

Business operations will return as normal, with adherence to the necesary standard operating procedures (SOPs) including
haircuts and beauty treatments at salons.

Schools will be opened in phases, with the Ministry of Education (MoE) and Ministry of Health (Moh) providing further details.

Interstate travel will also be allowed, except for areas under an enhanced movement control order (EMCO).

Other activities include:

Training activities for sports teams, and non-contact sports such as bowling, badminton, archery and shooting.

Hari Raya Aidiladha and sacrifice rites will be allowed under the SOPs provided by religious authorities.

For group prayers and religious activities in mosques and other houses of worship, more people will be allowed into services, with the government to provide guidance on this soon.

Open markets, morning markets, night markets, bazaars, food courts, hawker centres, food trucks and food stalls will be allowed.
