KOTA KINABALU: Nine districts will not be able to take part in Sabah’s zonal travel system, which allows people to cross districts within the same zones, when it resumes tomorrow.

Sabah local government and housing minister Masidi Manjun said Kinabatangan, Telupid, Tongod, Sandakan, Kalabakan, Tawau, Papar, Semporna and Nabawan will miss out for now as the vaccination rate of the adult population in those districts was still below 60%.

The districts where zonal travel system is allowed are:

Zone 1 – Kota Kinabalu, Penampang, Putatan, Tuaran, Ranau and Kota Belud;
Zone 2 – Beaufort, Sipitang and Kuala Penyu;
Zone 3 – Kudat, Kota Marudu, Pitas and Beluran;
Zone 4 – Lahad Datu and Kunak; and
Zone 5 – Keningau, Tambunan and Tenom.

Previously, there were six zones but Kinabatangan, Telupid, Tongod and Sandakan, which are all under one zone, still do not qualify due to their low vaccination rate.

Masidi had previously said the state government would reinstate the zonal travel system when 60% of the state’s adult population has been fully vaccinated.

He said districts that had yet to achieve the same vaccination rate would be considered as standalone districts.

This means people there will not be allowed to cross to other districts in their zones until 60% of the adult population are vaccinated. - FMT
