Were these checkpoints also around any other times from March through September? I hope we never end up with measures as draconian as that here in our state or the country. Mentally, I still need that illusion of being free.
I should be clear. I keep hearing that there are check points but I haven't seen them. My wife and I just moved from Selangor to Kuala Lumpur today and we didn't have any problems. I know our contractor and movers have had some problems doing work in certain districts in and around the Klang Valley and they've even said "no" to certain jobs because they won't be able to to get there
For people who still have to travel to work, they are required to get letters from their employers that say they work in another district - that way if there is a police block, they'll have evidence that they need to be there.
This is still less draconian than what we dealt with from March til June - at that time they were utilizing the army and police prevent movement from one place to another.
Sadly, my mother in law's dog became deathly ill during that time so my wife had to apply for permission to cross state lines and euthanize the poor dog. The police officer rejected the excuse with the strong suggestion that she reapply claiming her mother was having a nervous breakdown due to loneliness. That got us our travel pass and we drove the two hours to see her.
After the inositol lockdown, things got pretty free here - we even took a three hour drive to the east coast and had a club med holiday.
But then, after the elections in Sabah there was a spike in cases and here we are again
