Theme parks to resume operations starting July 1 – Ismail Sabri


THE Special Ministerial Meeting on the implementation of the movement control order (MCO) today announced more flexibility, including allowing theme parks to reopen from July 1.

Also it was decided that body temperature screening would only be conducted once and not multiple times at shopping malls.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said it will involve 54 theme parks including water theme parks and a workforce of more than 10,000 nationwide.

In line with today’s decision, visitors to shopping malls will now only have to record their temperature once at the main entrance, and not at every store in the mall.

However, operators of all theme parks and shopping malls must adhere to the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) such as social distancing at all times.

“For theme parks, the limit of visitors allowed to enter depends on the capacity and size of the theme park. Visitors also have to register with MySejahtera and undergo body temperature checks and hand sanitisation,” he said in his daily media briefing today.
