There are now more commuters on the road as most economic sectors have reopened under the conditional movement control order. Interstate travel is still not permitted, however, the 10km radius limit for essential trips to buy groceries and necessities has been lifted. Meanwhile, up to 4 family members can travel in one car but it is still advisable not to bring children and the elderly to public spaces to reduce exposure.
