Malaysia has scrapped the need for people to scan the MySejahtera QR code when entering premises or at any public place, Khairy Jamaluddin said today.
The health minister said that individuals would now be allowed to enter all premises, regardless of their vaccination status.
“The management of the premises would still need to check the risk status of individuals in the MySejahtera application.
“Individuals with “High-Risk” status on the MySejahtera app for example positive cases and individuals who have been given a Home Surveillance Order (HSO), are not allowed to enter the premises,” Khairy said at a press conference today.
Under the transition into the endemic phase, those who tested positive for Covid-19 can be released from the home surveillance order (HSO) on Day 4, should they test negative by then.
Khairy said under this condition which begins on May 1, they must take an RTK-Antigen test supervised by a certified medical practitioner, either in person, or via virtual meeting to have their status updated.
Meanwhile, nightclubs will now be allowed to reopen as the National Security Council’s Negative List, which prohibited certain activities and businesses during the Covid-19 pandemic, will be abolished starting May 15.
“That is the only institution still in the negative list, so I think you can understand,” said Khairy, when asked if nightclubs specifically would be allowed to reopen.
