The government has announced that it will impose the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) on Menara City One in Jalan Munshi Abdullah, Kuala Lumpur after 17 positive cases of COVID-19 have been detected over there. The building which is located right next to Dang Wangi District Police Headquarters and Semua House is the third area to be hit by EMCO after selected areas in Hulu Langat and Simpang Renggam.
Just like the previous EMCO areas, any movements in and out of the condominium are fully prohibited once the EMCO kicks in at the stroke of midnight on 31 March 2020 which will affect 3,200 residents until 13 April. The move was imposed on the Menara City One not only to stop the spread of COVID-19 but also to allow authorities to perform test from unit to unit.

Interesting enough, residents are still allowed to order their food via delivery service though which can be delivered to the main lobby of the building. They can also still purchase essential supplies from stores within the building.
Nevertheless, the situation is still quite serious as the government will still set up a Medical Base at the building throughout the EMCO implementation. Meanwhile, please keep yourself safe by practicing good hygiene and stay home as much as you can, so that we have better chance on stopping the COVID-19 pandemic
