The Sabah government has not decided to allow two people from a household to travel together during the movement control order (MCO).
Sabah Chief Minister Mohd Shafie Apdal (photo) said the latest ruling by the federal government would need to be studied and discussed at the Sabah Covid-19 command centre before it could be implemented at the state level.
"We need to study its impact first. If it can be implemented without any adverse effects, we will do it," he told reporters after receiving a visit from a team of medical specialists from China in Kota Kinabalu today.
Mohd Shafie said, for now, two people travelling in one vehicle would only be allowed for specific purposes.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Ismail Sabri Yaakob today announced some relaxed measures by the federal government under the fourth phase of the MCO, including allowing two family members to travel in one vehicle for essential purposes such as purchasing food and groceries. - Bernama
