The Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center and Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Center, closed to the public after the Movement Control Order on 18 March, will reopen today.
In a statement made by Sabah Wildlife Department director Augustine Tuuga, it was agreed that ecotourism will now function as normal following the Government 's announcement.
However, he stressed that the centers would have to comply with the Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Ministry, National Security Council and Health Ministry 's standard operational procedures (SOPs), to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.
"Please be clear that the three popular tourist spots are only open to locals and Malaysian visitors for the time being. For personal safety, I advise visitors to abide by the SOPs which have been set as the new norm, to avoid the spread of COVID-19 while visiting these centres," he said.
