Statistic as of Tuesday 14 July 2020
As the Covid-19 situation in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo begins to ease with only zero to one digit number of cases daily since early June, we have entered the Recovery phase where almost all businesses including ourselves have reopened. Currently, there are also no longer any red-zone districts in the state. Though our Movement Control Order has been relaxed, we are embracing the new normal and continuously complying with SOPs during this time.
At present, all foreigners are still currently restricted from entering Malaysia, whilst the interstate travel ban has been lifted.
We are hoping that borders will reopen soon and airlines can recommence their international flights into Malaysia. However, the situation remains fluid and could change rapidly depending on Covid-19 developments.
