The Sarawak Government through the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) has announced that the following activities will also be allowed during the RMCO beginning 17th June 2020 but still subjected to SDMC approval based on SOP endorsement.

Below is a quick summary of what is allowed and not allowed during the RMCO.

Operating hours for food courts, food trucks, food stalls and convenience stores will start to operate at normal hours.

As SDMC attempts to facilitate the types of businesses and activities opening up, the premise owners are required to fill in the online NOTIFICATION FORM to indicate the intention of doing so. This NOTIFICATION is NOT AN APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL and DIFFERS from MITI Application.

The NOTIFICATION will be sent to the Chairman of the Divisional Disaster Management Committee (DDMC) namely the Resident of the Division. For example, if your business is located in Mukah or Dalat or in Tanjung Manis, your notification will be sent to DDMC Mukah or Resident of Mukah Division based on the information entered by you in the DIVISION address field.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note that the Updating of SOP and Activities in the link is ongoing. Watch out for updated information on SOP under this Ministry and other Ministries (if SOP is made available including the origin from SOP owner) at the ANNOUNCEMENT Section.
