Starting School in 2021 under MCO 2.0




There is some confusion about when to start school in 2021 under the new MCO 2.0. Here is a brief and quick summary. 

First, let's understand or recall some abbreviations. 

MCO = Movement Control Order / PKP (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan) 

When things improve, then the restrictions on movement are relaxed leading to 
CMCO = Conditional Movement Control Order/PKPB (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Bersyarat). This is when there is movement controls with certain conditions ie "bersyarat" or conditional 

Finally, when the pandemic situation has improved further and we are in the recovery phase, we have 
RMCO = Recovery Movement Control Order/PKPP (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Pemulihan) with easing of movement controls.

MCO 2.0 will commence for the following states wef 13 Jan 2021 for 2 weeks.

MCO
Selangor, Wilayah Persekutuan (Kuala Lumpur, Labuan and Putrajaya), Johor, Melaka, Penang and Sabah

CMCO
Kedah, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang

RMCO

Sarawak, Perlis

When will school start in 2021?

20 Jan 2021 or according to academic calendar of institutions. However whether you will return to school for face to face learning, depends on which area you are.
