Now that some locations are moving into the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) once again, there is also a new set of rules and standard operating procedures (SOPs) to follow.

And, it is completely understandable to feel confused over the constant changes in SOPs, which is why we’re here to help.

Here’s the updated list of SOPs:

But first, you’ll need to make sure you’re in an RMCO area, which includes: Perlis, Terengganu, Pahang, Melaka, Sarawak, Putrajaya, Labuan, Kedah (except Kulim), Penang (except Mukim 12: Barat Daya and Mukim 13: Timur Laut), Perak (except Kinta, Mukim Teja, Kampar, Mukim Changkat Jong and Hilir Perak), Negeri Sembilan (except Seremban and Port Dickson), Johor (except Johor Bahru, Kota Tinggi, Batu Pahat and Kulai), Kelantan (except Kota Bahru, Machang, Tanah Merah and Pasir Mas), and Selangor (Sabak Bernam, Hulu Selangor and Kuala Selangor).

And do note that these SOPs do not apply to Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) locations.
