So, where will they be observing? There are multiple CCTV control centers around Penang, but the most prominent control center will be located in Komtar. Other control centers include state police contingent headquarters, the northeast district police headquarters, and Batu Ferringhi. Should it be necessary, announcements will also be made from these control centers to ensure social distancing is being practiced.

In addition to this, horn speakers and amplifiers will sound off every 15 to 20 minutes to ensure social distancing as well. If these sound instruments are not able to disperse people, MBPP will be making their way to the grounds. As interstate travel is now allowed, it was reported that tourists are making their way to the island. What do you think about this method to ensure social distancing? Let us know in the comments!
