Individuals found guilty of breaching the Movement Control Order (MCO) will now be fine RM10,000 compared to the RM1,000 fine previously imposed.
Meanwhile, companies and organizations will be liable to a maximum fine of up to RM50,000.
The new rule is according to the new Emergency (Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 gazetted yesterday.
Covid-19 patients or close contact personnel may also be instructed to wear a tracking device for easier monitoring under the new ordinance.
The new rules will come into effect on March 11.
