MOGSC's Update on the Movement Control Order #5 - Latest List of Essential Services

Dear MOGSC Members,

As some of you may have seen, there was a news article published yesterday, 2nd April 2020, that mentioned that in this second phase of the MCO, the list of 22 essential services will be reduced to only 10 essential services. The new list of essential services was listed in the Federal Gazette - Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures within Infected Local Areas) (No. 2) Regulations 2020, published on 31st March. In that list of 10 essential services, Oil & Gas services was taken out.

Following that article, MOGSC had seeked clarification and confirmation from PETRONAS and various authorities on our status as an essential service. Today, 3rd April 2020, the Government has amended the Federal Gazette to reinstate 5 essential services to the list including Oil & Gas services.

Majlis Keselamatan Negara (MKN) has also clarified the update in their latest FAQ.

You can download the latest Federal Gazette and MKN FAQ from the link below for your reference.

Stay Safe and have a good weekend.
