PETALING JAYA: An enhanced movement control order (MCO) will be imposed on the Tropicana Golf and Country Resort's workers' hostel, which is not on the premises, for two weeks from midnight onwards on Sunday — that is beginning at 12.01am on Monday (Oct 12) — to contain Covid-19 transmission.
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, on Saturday (Oct 10), said the lockdown order would not cover the clubhouse or residential units.
"Only the workers' hostel will be under the enhanced MCO from Oct 12 to Oct 25," The Defence Minister told a press conference via Facebook Live on Saturday.
He said those affected by the lockdown order would not be allowed to go outdoors.
"The authorities, including state authorities, will arrange for food to be sent to them," he said.
Meanwhile, 1Utama shopping complex in Bandar Utama was ordered close for seven days from Oct 12 for sanitisation and decontamination works.
He said the health authorities had initiated contact tracing, as some workers at the complex had tested positive for Covid-19.
Screening and contact tracing activities were in progress, he said, adding that about 800 workers were employed there.
He said people had two more days to travel in and out of Sabah before the state borders were closed on Oct 12.
"Movement into Sabah from Sarawak, Labuan and peninsula, and vice versa will be barred.
"We will only allow movement for official government matters and emergency cases, including transporting the dead," he said.
The air force will make daily flights to Sabah to ferry health personnel and to transport samples to the Peninsula for testing in view of limited capacity in Sabah.
As the Tawau Hospital is dedicated for Covid-19 cases, the Armed Forces' field hospital in Sabah will be used for treatment of other cases.
Ismail said sports activities were not allowed in red zones, namely those under controlled movement control order (MCO) and enhanced MCO.
