PETALING JAYA: Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob has announced a ban on travel between different districts in Sabah.
Ismail said essential services such as food supplies, medical, security and others that require travel between districts will still be allowed during the period.
The travel restriction is effective from midnight on Saturday to Oct 16.
“Those under quarantine and who have completed their quarantine period will be allowed to return to their respective districts or to the peninsula, Sarawak or Labuan.
“However, the enhanced movement control order (EMCO) in Tawau, Lahad Datu, Kunak and Semporna will continue to be enforced,” he said in a statement today.
Ismail said any additional information will be relayed by the Sabah government from time to time.
He also said police arrested 98 individuals yesterday for offences under the recovery movement control order (RMCO), with 95 fined and three remanded.
Thirty-four were caught at pubs and nightclubs, 24 for not practising physical distancing, 22 for not wearing face masks, 10 for failing to pay their quarantine fees and eight for not recording their personal details upon entering shops.
Police also caught 59 undocumented migrants and confiscated three land vehicles and one boat as part of their ongoing Ops Benteng campaign.
