A man wearing a pink wristband at a restaurant in Bandar Tasik Puteri, Rawang was arrested last night on suspicion of having breached the mandatory Covid-19 quarantine.
Gombak district police chief ACP Arifai Tarawe said the 52-year-old was detained in front of the restaurant at about 7.30pm after a public tip-off.
“On checking, it was found that the man had been ordered to home quarantine from yesterday until Oct 16 after a Covid-19 screening at klia2 and while awaiting the test results,” he said when contacted today.

“We urge those who have been issued the quarantine order by the health ministry to comply with the rules as this is ensure that they, their families and others are safe,” he said, adding that their negligence could raise anxiety within the community.
