KUCHING: Members of the public are still required to obtain a permit for
inter-district travel from their nearest police station.
State Commissioner of Police Datuk Aidi Ismail said the need for the permit
is aimed at curbing the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak to several green zone
areas, especially within Sarawak’s rural areas.
This move is out of fear that those from the city who are returning home
might spread the virus to the villages.
He further stated that there are 44 roadblocks that have begun operating
around Sarawak starting at 7am yesterday (May 10).
