This rule was enforced after 15 coronavirus cases were detected from the building. The Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) will carry on until all residents (approximately 6000 staying in 365 residential and commercial units at both buildings) are screened.
Arahan keempat Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Diperketatkan (PKPD) dikenakan di Bangunan Selangor Mansion dan Malayan Mansion di Jalan Masjid India, KL.
Arahan ini dikeluarkan selepas 15 kes positif #COVID19 dikesan.
PKPD ini berkuatkuasa 7 April sehingga pengesanan tamat.
