Selangor residents urged to bring a utility bill along when going out during MCO

Selangor residents who need to go out during the Movement Control Order need to bring along a utility bill which states their current address. The Movement Control Order ends on the 14th of April 2020, pending an announcement on the 10th of April, on whether it would be extended.

This is to show the authorities at roadblocks that they are within the boundaries of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measure within Infected Local Areas) Regulations 2020.

Rule 4 of the regulation came into effect on the 1st of April 2020 and will be enforced until the end of the MCO period. It states that any travel for reasons allowed is restricted to a 10-km radius from the person’s address.

“During the MCO period, keep a utility bill with your current address in the car. If authorities asks, use that to justify your reason for being out of the house,” said Selangor Integrity and Standards Compliance Department Chief ACP Mohd Ismail Muslim.

He also said there will be more road blocks and closures, especially at highway entry and exit points, as authorities aim to further reduce interstate travel.

Recently, the Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) Subang Jaya District Headquarters announced that it would be conducting 24-hour road blocks and road closures in 15 different locations after Phase 2 of the Movement Control Order came into effect on the 1st of April 2020.
