TOW truck operators, veterinarians and traditional medicine providers are allowed to operate during the movement control order period, but construction projects need to obtain approval before they are allowed to resume.
These are among the guidelines issued by the National Security Council today.
However, tow truck operators and workshops should operate with “minimal staff”. Religious, recreational and sports, and socio-cultural non-essential services will remain closed.
The essential services that are not affected during this period are water, electricity, telecommunications, post, fire and rescue unit, waste management, broadcasting, grocery stores, transport, oil and gas, banking, healthcare, pharmacies, wildlife, prisons, ports, airports, security, defence, food and hotels.
Restaurants and food traders are allowed to provide take away and deliveries but dine-ins are prohibited.
