Many nations have taken crucial step to enforce the Movement Control Order (MCO) as a strategy to flatten the spreading curve of active Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). In Malaysia, the MCO enforcement has led to the temporary shutdown of major public sectors in order to restrain social activities and encourage the people to s tay at home. Unintentionally, the execution of MCO raised psychosocial concerns among community members due to the fact that daily routine activities had been restricted by the enforcement of strict standard operating procedures for uncertain period of time.
