DURING this movement control order (MCO) period, some apartment management bodies and private developments have taken things into their own hands to protect their residents.
A few apartment and condominium schemes are no longer allowing visitors to enter.
Beautician Jeenie Thai, 46, who lives in a condominium in Green Lane, Penang, said she just found out that visitors were no longer allowed into the premises.
“I noticed visitors being turned away.
“Apparently, we are not allowed to have visitors until the MCO is over.
“I think if you walk past security like you are a resident, then the guards do not trouble you but if you drive in to use the visitors’ parking area or make enquiries, they will turn you away.
“Normally, guests just need to register at the guard house.
“Now, even delivery people have to wait at the guard house, ” she said.
Meanwhile, at another apartment building in Tanjung Tokong, resident manager S. Subas said their joint management body had implemented a no-visitor policy during the MCO period.
“We do not allow any visitors, property agents or contractors to enter the premises.
“Security guards are also taking down the details of residents and owners entering and leaving the premises as well as checking the temperature of residents every day.
“We wish to strictly adhere to directives from the Prime Minister’s Office and Ministry of Health.
“We also follow Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow’s call to act responsibly so we may pull through together for the wellbeing of all Malaysians, ” said Subas.
