Covid-19 & Malaysia: Update on Government Movement Control Order
17 March 2020, updated 09 November 2020
The Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) was implemented on 10 June 2020, and is slated to be in place until 31 December 2020, unless further extended. Under the RMCO, almost all social, educational, religious, business and economic activities can be carried out, but shall continue to adhere to Government-implemented standard operating procedures and best practices.
However, there has been a spike in Covid-19 cases in the country. As such, the Government has implemented the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), which took effect from 14 October 2020. The CMCO will end on 06 December 2020, unless further extended.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Starting 13 October 2020, we have reactivated our work from home arrangements. There are employees operating from the office premise, while some are operating from home.

Due to the ongoing situation and in practicing social distancing, we would strongly encourage that all communications take place via electronic communications and by video conferencing.
