All roads in and out of Kuala Sanglang closed

KUALA PERLIS: Police will be closing all exit and entry points in Kuala Sanglang from 8am today.

Police will also intensify control at three rat trails (lorong tikus) – one in Kampung Tanah Timbul and two in Kampung Kuala Sanglang – after the two villages were placed under the targeted enhanced movement control order (MCO) to contain the spread of Covid-19 infection.

The three routes will be closed to the public from today until Sept 4.

“We will barricade these alternative routes to restrict movement in the areas concerned, ” said Perlis police chief SAC Datuk Surina Saad (pic).

She also said all residents of Kampung Tanah Timbul had undergone screening on Saturday while Kampung Kuala Sanglang residents were tested yesterday.

“Once the screening process has been completed, all routes will start to be fully closed tomorrow (today), ” she said.

“Residents in both villages are not allowed to leave the house until the targeted enhanced MCO period is over.”

SAC Surina said only the heads of families were allowed to go out to get necessities, limited to inside the targeted enhanced MCO area only.

The authorities are keeping a close watch on all 872 residents placed under the targeted enhanced MCO until Sept 4 in the two villages.

State women, family and community development committee chairman Siti Berenee Yahaya said some shops would remain open and residents in the affected villages could still get their groceries.

The state government, she said, was also planning to provide food rations to the villagers.

Two schools in the district have been ordered closed for seven days beginning today.

As of Saturday, Perlis had recorded 30 cases with 11 new cases related to persons under investigation from the Sivagangga cluster.
