KUALA LUMPUR: Families are allowed to visit inmates at all prison institutions in Sabah and Sarawak on June 3 and 4, in conjunction with the Harvest Festival.
The Prisons Department, in a statement, said that visiting hours are between 8.15 am and 4.15 pm.
“Visitors are required to have RT-PCR or ARTK-Ag (swab/saliva) test results that must be valid for three days after sample collection and be asymptomatic.
