KUALA LUMPUR: Families must not go out together during the movement control order (MCO) period.
Selangor deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said some families were still unclear that they should not go out in groups.
"We conducted our operations Thursday (March 19) in Ampang Jaya and based on our observation, the public seem to be taking the MCO seriously.
"We did come across a vehicle during our checks which were carrying several family members, including children.
"They told us that they had just gone to visit their family and were on their way home," he told reporters at a roadblock in Ampang Jaya on Thursday.
He said the family was then advised to stay home.
"Maybe some are still not aware that going out in general is ill-advised. Even going to visit other family members should be avoided. The MCO is in place to limit the movement of people to curb the spread of Covid-19.
"Going out unnecessarily will just increase the risk of spreading the virus," he said, adding that his personnel would continue with their operations throughout the MCO period to ensure that the public adhere to it.
The public, said DCP Arjunaidi, should only go out individually to buy food or essential items and during emergencies only.
