For posterity sake, today is the first day of the Conditional Movement Control Order for most states in Malaysia. This is what I called the second #lockdown.
972 new cases in Malaysia, where for the past few weeks it went past 1000 new cases on some days. We went into a tighter control MCO in March when cases were hitting 300ish a day. We are way past that.
Worse still, Penang is seeing a few new clusters.. one is nearby where I stay impacting the Tenby School children and Parents. As of now, there’s not much we know other than whatsapp messages circulating
Kids are at home, “home learning” is where the teacher sends worksheets over whatapp. Teacher asked parents to “type in” the kids’ attendance. Parents watching over the phone would have marked their attendance. No Zoom, no Google Meet. Hope things get better but this is one of the parts that caused stress between me and the wife
Mum is with us, wife had to go to work. There are 10 people staying in Penang Island, so each take a day to be on duty so they have 2 people in the office on weekdays.
The CMCO rules are getting clearer. Basically can go to work with employer letter. No more than 2 people in a car. For personal reason, no travel across districts
This is probably the best infographics of the rule that I got. Others are too wordy
