He said there were eight compliance teams in Petaling Jaya conducting checks around the clock.
"During Hari Raya Aidilfitri, these teams will be out patrolling neighbourhoods.

ACP Mohamad Fakhrudin urged the public to comply with the MCO in order to flatten the Covid-19 curve.
"We all must play our part to combat this pandemic," he said.
