FOLLOWING the reopening of theme parks nationwide starting July 1, about 10,000 theme park workers are to comply with the standard operating procedures (SOP) during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO).
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said among the key SOPs are ensuring social distancing at all times, temperature checks of visitors at the main entrance and ensuring that the number of people allowed is in accordance with the space capacity and size of the theme park areas.
Sunway Theme Park executive director Calvin Ho said he would ensure its parks’ level of cleanliness and that compliance of the SOP was maintained at the highest level for the safety of visitors.
Ho said social distancing remains a top priority by setting the limit the number of visitors to just 30 percent of the total capacity or 15,000 visitors a day instead of 50,000. Water quality will also be checked regularly, including test by an independent third-party water quality control contractor.
To ensure that factual information is channeled to the public in a consistent manner, he said, they are always in constant contact with the Ministry of Health.
Meanwhile, MBO Cinemas chief operating officer Cheah Chun Wai said it would ensure that cleanliness is practiced at all times, including cleaning and disinfection exercises in the cinema lobby, walkways, ticket counters and the whole premises before and after operations.
He said the company would ensure all SOPs were complied with, including conducting body temperature checks and social distancing at ticket counters, food kiosks and ticket collection entrances.
On the number of viewers to be allowed into each movie hall, Cheah said it would be done in accordance with the SOP that allows a maximum of 250 viewers per session depending on the hall size.
As for ticket prices for each show, he said it would be decided after taking into account the entire preparation made for the reopening of cinemas.
