KUALA PERLIS (Bernama): Police will be closing all exit and entry points in Kuala Sanglang beginning from 8am Monday (Aug 10).
Police would also intensify control at three rat trails, namely, one in Kampung Tanah Timbul and two in Kampung Kuala Sanglang, as the two villages are now placed under the targeted enhanced movement control order (MCO) to contain the spread of Covid-19.
Perlis police chief Datuk Surina Saad said all residents of Kampung Tanah Timbul had undergone screenings yesterday, while Kampung Kuala Sanglang residents would do the same today.
Once the screening processes have been completed, all routes would start to be fully closed tomorrow, she said.
"Residents in both villages are not allowed to leave the house and they have to serve quarantine at home until the targeted enhanced MCO period is over, ” she told reporters here Sunday (Aug 9).
She said that only the heads of families were allowed to go out to get necessities, limited to inside the targeted enhanced movement control order area only.
Meanwhile Surina said that police are not issuing any letter permitting any individuals to go in or out of the targeted enhanced MCO area. Such letters would only be issued by the Ministry of Health, she added. - Bernama
