Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has closed the popular Taman Tasik Titiwangsa park to the public indefinitely from 28th May onwards due to the large number of visitors.
In a Facebook post, DBKL said the decision was made to prevent the spread of Covid-19 as the area had been receiving too many visitors.
However, members of the public are still allowed to jog outside the park.
Malay Mail reported that the park was recently opened on 4th May in line with the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) rules.
Senior Minister (Defence) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob commented today that the power to shut public parks over CMCO violations is in the hands of local authorities.
Speaking to reporters at his daily CMCO press conference, the minister stated that the National Security Council’s standard operating procedures (SOP) was clear that actions that can lead to crowding (in public spaces) were listed under the negative list or prohibited list.
Under CMCO, public parks are allowed to open for activities with strict adherence to SOPs such as social distancing. The Health Ministry has also urged Malaysians to avoid crowded places.
