MCO Phase 4: 1 Family Member Can Accompany You For Grocery
When it comes to MCO, there have been stricter rules and laws in the past few weeks to retain the Coronavirus. However, with the recent decrease in numbers, the government is relaxing many regulations during MCO phase 4. One important piece of news is you can now travel with another family member for food, necessities, medicines or supplements within 10KM of the home.

- Food services

Together, We Can Fight This Together
With a new set of rules and regulations, it is still important that we shouldn’t roam around freely. It’s better to listen to these rules. Otherwise, anyone found violating the regulations shall be fined with a maximum of RM1000 or jail for up to 6 months. Anyways, we hope our country will get better and soon turn into a green zone. Stay safe and healthy! See you in the next post.
