“Anything involving close contact is prohibited. Reflexology involves physical contact.

“It is not catergorise neither as sport nor entertainment.

“However, in breach of another health standard operating procedure (SOP) – physical distancing, thus reflexology will not be opened till the area turns green,” he said in a statement.
