Full Lockdown (MCO 3.0) Starting 1 June 2021

Monday / 31 May 2021

Please note that the Malaysian Government has announced a Movement Control Order (MCO 3.0), which is a full lockdown beginning from 1 June 2021 to 14 June 2021. This will be similar to the first MCO (MCO 1.0) announced in March 2020, with strict restrictions on movements and the total shutdown of almost all sectors apart from essential economic and service sectors. Detailed information on the SOPs will also be shared.

Please remember that social activities such as visiting friends are not allowed. Stay at home as much as possible and only go out for essential needs such as food or medicine. Continue to maintain hygiene practices such as proper mask-wearing, regular hand washing and cleaning of surfaces.

If you are feeling unwell, try to stay apart or keep a distance from those you share a home with. Please get tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible and continue to stay isolated while waiting for your results.

Refugees and asylum-seekers are urged to comply with the SOPs determined by the Malaysian Government in order to stop the alarming increase of COVID-19 infections. Please continue to check the Refugee Malaysia website regularly for updated information on the MCO and avenues for assistance.
