Nationwide MCO from May 12 – max 3 people in cars, taxis, e-hailing; CVs and public transport unaffected –

With the Covid-19 situation in the country getting more critical, prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has declared a nationwide movement control order (MCO) from May 12 till June 7.

Normal MCO rules apply, but what’s new is the three to a vehicle rule. From May 12, only three people can be in a vehicle (private, taxi and e-hailing), including the driver. That means one driver and two passengers max.

For vehicles carrying goods and commercial vehicles, the max amount depends on what’s allowed in the commercial vehicle license. In other words, no change. Also unchanged is the policy for public transport, although social distancing and regular SOPs will continue to apply.

Of course, MCO means that there’s no crossing state or district borders, but that’s already in place.
