Tourism Pahang has dismissed a social media post alleging that a trail in Fraser's Hill, Raub, has been ordered to close after several hikers tested positive for Covid-19.
Its general manager Datuk Ishak Mokhtar described the Facebook posting as fake saying the Pine Tree Trail, which is popular among hikers and nature lovers, remains open for trekkers.
Independent homestay operators and caretakers must be alert when renting their properties out to large groups during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO).
Since night clubs and entertainment outlets are still barred from operating, some quarters seem to take the opportunity to host private parties at rented homestay units.
The Pahang Health Department today clarified that the woman spotted wearing a pink wristband at a popular restaurant in Temerloh on Sunday was not a patient or placed under mandatory quarantine related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Its director Datuk Dr Bahari Awang Ngah said the woman was actually a former patient of the Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Hospital (HOSHAS) in Temerloh and was believed to have stopped at the restaurant with her family members as soon as she was allowed to leave.
