Original story follows…
Miss hanging out amongst the clouds? There were reports that Resorts World Genting is expected to resume business next Wednesday, on 10th June 2020.
This news comes courtesy of China Press, who reported that restaurants, shops, and casino are set to begin operations again during the opening date. Of course, this is provided that the conditional movement control order (CMCO) does not extend yet again.
According to the Chinese publication, tenants and employees were previously asked to return to Genting Highlands Malaysia by 5th June 2020. The aforementioned people who have submitted their documents are required to stay put in First World Hotel while they undergo necessary check-ups during the quarantine period.
Word on the street has it that accommodation and daily meals are being covered by Resorts World Genting. The resort has also been updating its Facebook on the precautionary measures and will follow the SOP in order to ensure the safety and health of customers and employees.
No word yet on the opening of the outdoor theme park but we heard that Genting’s indoor theme park might open the following month on 1st July 2020. Is this true though?
