According to a statement by Sabah Parks Board of Trustees, Kinabalu Park will be closed from 25 September to 8 October 2020. Visitors, except essential staff, are not allowed to enter the park starting today (24 September 2020).
The closure is due to a hiker from Tawau, Sabah who tested positive for Covid-19. The hiker went to the park on 13 to 14 September 2020.
“The mountain guides and porters on duty on those two days were required to undergo health screenings. Anyone who tested positive would be put on a 14-day quarantine,” says the statement.
All staff working at the registration counters, screening areas, and gates at Kinabalu Park and Panalaban are also required to undergo health screenings today (24 September 2020) at the Kinabalu hall.
Sanitisation and disinfection activities will be done to all the facilities of the park.
As of 24 September 2020, the number of new Covid-19 cases surged to 147 cases, 134 cases out of that are all from Sabah.
