Kuala Lumpur: The prohibition on crossing state nationwide at the moment will remain while travel across district is allowed except Sabah effective from March 5 to 18.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said inter district ban in Sabah would be maintained for two weeks based on the request of the state government.

"We understand Sabah is very big, one district in the state is larger than most states in the Peninsula. As such the Sabah government asked the matter (cross district) to be postponed in the state,” he told a media conference on the development of Movement Control Order (MCO) here today.

Apart from that, Ismail Sabri said the status of Movement Control Order (MCO) in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Johor and Penang would be replaced with Conditional Movement Control Order from March 5 to 18.

He said the status of CMCO in Kedah, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan, Sarawak and Perak would remain while the status of CMCO in Melaka, Pahang, Terengganu, Putrajaya, Labuan would be changed to Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO).

"The order will be effective from March 5 to 18 except in Sarawak where the RMCO implementation will start from March 2 to March 15. Perlis will remained under RMCO,” he said.
