THE popular hiking trail in Bukit Gasing will be opened to the public this Saturday (Oct 16), confirms the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ).
However, the council said only individuals who were fully vaccinated would be allowed to hike there.
Hikers must scan the QR code before entering the hill and practise physical distancing, said an MBPJ spokesperson.
Meanwhile, Friends of Bukit Gasing committee member Rajesh Mansukhla said he hoped MBPJ would station some officers at the entrance of the hill to check on the necessary standard operating procedures.
“I hope the public will practise their common sense when visiting Bukit Gasing. If there is a big crowd it is advisable for people to just not enter the hiking trail.
“I hope the council will track the number of people entering the hill. The hiking trail is narrow and people do not wear masks while tracking the hill. I hope people will use their judgement before deciding to hike here.
“MBPJ as a governing body must also be strict with their enforcement at these popular recreational spots,” he added.
