KOTA KINABALU: Several residential colleges in Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) will be placed under enhanced movement control order (EMCO) from April 5 to April 18.
Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said the residential colleges involved are Tun Mustapha, Tun Fuad and Tun Pengiran Ahmad Raffae.
"The implementation is to ensure that the movement of the residents can be controlled to prevent the spread of Covid-19 among the community outside of the residential colleges.
"To date, a total of 133 individuals have been screened where 19 of them tested positive for the virus," he said in a statement today.
According to Masidi, the implementation was agreed by the State Government with the advice of the Ministry of Health (MoH) and after a joint risk assessment with various agencies in the MCO Technical Committee was conducted.
