KOTA KINABALU : All Sabah Parks stations and offices (TTS), including climbing activities to the summit of Mount Kinabalu, have been reopened to the public since Sept 16, says Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Jafry Ariffin.

He said the areas around the Turtle Island Park in Sandakan and Bohey Dulang Island in Semporna as well as the Ulu Kimanis sub-station will commence operations today (Sept 20).

“However, the reopening of the park is subject to the stipulated rules as only visitors who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be allowed in.

“Domestic tourists from the same district, as well as civil servants, aged above 12 and under 70 are also allowed,” he said in a statement today.
