No entry for non-locals

During the lockdown, any local or visiting person within the vicinity is subjected to abide by a set curfew. Non-locals will be barred from entering these areas as all entry points will be blocked.

All businesses must be closed down during the entire period. However, residents are assured that they will not be cut off from a supply of essential goods as necessities will be distributed to them via the Social Welfare Department.

A medical base will also be set up to treat patients and PDRM officers, the army, Civil Defence Force and People’s Volunteer Corps (RELA) personnel will set up their posts to enforce the order accordingly.
