Twenty-four new Tamhidi (Foundation) students of Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (Usim) for the 2020/2021 session, all of whom are from Sarawak and Kedah, are being placed under a two-week quarantine at the university’s residential colleges here following the latest development of Covid-19 in the two states.
Usim Student Housing Centre director Mohd Salehudin Syukor said of the total, five were from Kuching, Sarawak, and the rest were from Kubang Pasu, Kedah.
The popular seaside destination here has reopened to the public with many holidaymakers adhering to standard operating procedures under the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO). A survey by the New Straits Times revealed many had chosen Port Dickson as a weekend getaway spot. Trader, Diana Abd Manan, 37, said she recently resumed her business selling swimming trunks and floats after it was closed since the Movement Control Order was imposed on March 18.
A trial run to reopen eight mosques in the state for Friday prayers with congregations depending on the size of the mosques has been a success, says Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun (pic).
The Mentri Besar hoped it would pave the way for the reopening of more mosques and surau for Friday prayers in Negri Sembilan with a bigger number of worshippers.“This (the success) will now allow us to reopen more mosques for Friday prayers which had been restricted to 12 people, ” he said in a Facebook post.
