Sabah green light for diving activities to resume


Sabah has some of the world’s most famous diving locations.

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has allowed the resumption of diving activities, which were put on hold when a conditional movement control order (CMCO) was enforced on Oct 13.

Masidi Manjun, the state spokesman on Covid-19, said: “Diving is more of a leisure activity and the people have been locked up for a long time, so we have loosened it up for those who are into the hobby.”

He said diving was categorised as a sport and recreation that does not involve physical contact.

However, divers were bound by existing CMCO restrictions and cannot cross district boundaries.

Sabah has some of the world’s most famous diving spots.

Masidi said red zone areas such as Kota Kinabalu and Semporna which have locations for diving will also be allowed to resume diving operations.

He said the state tourism ministry would announce new rules for diving. Boats taking divers to the diving location would have to limit the number of passengers to 30% of the boat’s capacity to ensure physical distancing. - FMT
