EMCO SOP For Affected Areas | KL & Selangor

How long have we been in MCO? EMCO? RMCO? It feels like a never-ending loop of lockdowns and partial restrictions the past whole year.

To be exact, we have been in lockdown for the past 1 year, 3 months, 2 weeks, and 3 days. Or 474 days. Yikes! 😰

With all that lockdown, the daily number of COVID-19 cases are not going down so much. We have been floating amid an average of 5,000 to 6,000 cases a day.

EMCO Announced For Several Areas In Selangor & KL Districts

A week ago, on July 1st 2021, Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that a large part of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur was to be placed under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) from the 3rd of July 2021 to the 16th of July 2021. (Here we go again 😷)

The EMCO will affect all districts in Selangor except for Sabak Bernam and several locations in Kuala Lumpur for at least two weeks.

Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri said that the decision was made after a discussion concerning a risk evaluation by the Health Ministry and suggestions by various agencies following the high number of COVID-19 cases reported in Klang Valley over the past several weeks.

What Does The EMCO Mean For Citizens In The Affected Areas?

With the enforcement of the EMCO, citizens were given a list of strict SOP’s to adhere to.
