MALAYSIA:

Under the conditional movement control order (CMCO), the government is studying a proposal to allow interstate travel between green zones in states.

Senior Security Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said Langkawi and Sabak Bernam, both of which are green zones but are located under CMCO in the states, were an example.

So for instance, those from Sabak Bernam (with this proposal) may go on vacation to Langkawi. But the comprehensive SOPs we have to address.

He said that this was meant to improve domestic tourism, adding that another plan was for the three-person car cap to be relaxed for green areas.

However, he said that the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture was instructed to work on a more comprehensive proposal with other related ministries and agencies.

Ismail also said teachers wishing to return to the peninsula in East Malaysia, and vice versa may do so with police permission, with school holidays nearing the end of the year.
