Semalam dalam perutusan khas PM bagi menyampai Perintah Kawalan, dinyatakan dalam perkara keenam, “Penutupan semua premis kerajaan dan swasta kecuali yang terlibat dengan perkhidmatan penting negara (atau essential services).

Ada yang bertanya kepada saya, saya ada perniagaan bengkel kereta, adakah saya tersenarai? Saya menjual buku, adakah saya tersenarai?

Jelas dalam perutusan tersebut, semua wajib ditutup melainkan essential services ini. Apa itu essential services?

Dalam Akta Perhubungan Perusahaan 1967 iaitu Akta berkaitan dengan perlindungan hak-hak pekerja ada diberikan tafsiran maksud essential service dalam Seksyen 2 iaitu apa-apa perkhidmatan dalam Jadual Pertama.

Perkhidmatan dalam Jadual Pertama adalah seperti berikut:
