PUTRAJAYA — April 29, 2020: Those going out to buy food, essentials and seeking medical attention can now travel beyond the 10-kilometre radius limit.

However everyone is reminded not to go too far away from their residences but instead find a shop nearest to their locality.

In announcing this easing of the restrictions today, Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said other restrictions relaxed include allowing two persons from a family to run errands for food, medicine and other daily needs.

In line with this decision, the updated Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Declaration of Infected Local Areas) Order 2020 signed by the Health Minister states that the MCO is further extended from April 29 until May 12.
