Updated 19 March 2020: COVID-19 Mail

Malaysia announced the implementation of nationwide Movement Control Order (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan) on 16 March 2020. It takes place tomorrow on 18 March 2020 until 31 March 2020. However the postal service will continue as an essential service.

Pos Malaysia issued a COVID-19 Service Alert.

This creates a chapter in the philatelic history for tomorrow: COVID-19 Movement Control Order mails. Stick a stamp and send to yourself.

Meanwhile, it is time to tidy up our collections, check for gaps and fill up our albums. Housekeeping time!

Next issue: I guess if all goes well, in April?
