Joggers were spotted at Taman Tasik Permaisuri in Bandar Tun Razak as well as Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, but both parks were quiet with lots of parking still available in the parking lots.

All the joggers adhered to the conditions set by the authorities to either run alone or in pairs, taking care to maintain social distancing.

Under the CMCO, outdoor activities such as jogging that do not involve close contact or mass gatherings is permitted.
