This follows after a videographer was told to undergo quarantine by the Health Ministry.
Several journalists and photographers including state executive councillors and the videographer were at the press conference at Chow's office in Komtar on Wednesday (Oct 28).
State health director Dr Asmayani Khalib had advised Chow and the state officials to restrict their movements.
