KUCHING, Sept 30: Body massage centres, spa, reflexology, beauty, facial, manicure and pedicure services are finally off the Negative List as Sarawak enters Phase 3 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).

In the latest standard operating procedures (SOP) released by the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) for Phase 3, swimming pools, gyms, workout studios for yoga, zumba, and cybercafe outlets have also been excluded.


With that, those remaining as prohibited activities include the opening of night clubs, pubs, karaoke centres, theme parks, and family entertainment centres.

Live performances at hotel lounges, indoor and outdoor busking, cinemas, and cineplexes will continue to be disallowed until further notice.

Other than that, any activities involving a large amount of people gathering at one place where physical distancing is hard to be observed are not permitted altogether. — DayakDaily
