Movement Control Order (MCO) in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor
In May 2021, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has implemented the Movement Control Order (MCO) in Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor from 12 May - 7 June 2021 to curb the rise of COVID-19 cases in Malaysia. During these times, you're allowed to take part in a non-contact individual sport such as cycling, jogging and exercising but advised to practice a one-meter physical distance from others in public places. Do note that inter district travel is also temporarily banned and you're only allowed to travel within your district. For example, if you're residing in Selangor, you're not allowed to travel to Kuala Lumpur or Putrajaya until the ban is lifted.
