All entry, exit routes in Kuala Sanglang closed


POLICE have closed all exit and entry points in Kuala Sanglang beginning from 8am today.

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 (TEMCO) to contain the spread of Covid-19 infection.

Perlis police chief Datuk Surina Saad said all residents of Kampung Tanah Timbul underwent screenings on Saturday, while Kampung Kuala Sanglang residents did the same yesterday.

“Residents in both villages are not allowed to leave the house and they have to serve quarantine at home until the TEMCO period is over,” she told reporters yesterday.

She said only the heads of families are allowed to go out to get the necessities, limited to inside the TEMCO area only.

Meanwhile Surina said police are not issuing any letter permitting any individuals to go in or out of the TEMCO area, as such letters would only be issued by the Ministry of Health.
