KUALA LUMPUR, March 1 – Starting today, the MySejahtera risk status of casual contacts of positive Covid-19 cases will no longer turn to yellow, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said today.
Instead, casual contacts flagged by the MySejahtera app will simply receive a notification on their phone to self-test for Covid-19 if they develop symptoms.
They do not need to quarantine at home and are not subject to any restrictions.
From today as well, adult close contacts who do not show symptoms and who have received their booster vaccine do not need to self-isolate.
They only need to self-test on a Covid-19 antigen rapid test kit (RTK) on Day One (the day they were last in contact with a positive case) and again on Day Three.
Effective March 3, international travellers arriving in Malaysia via the Malaysia-Singapore vaccinated travel lane (VTL), the Langkawi International Travel Bubble (LITB), and the One-Stop Centre (OSC) for short-term business visitors do not have to test daily after arrival.
They only need to test for Covid-19 two days before departure and on arrival in Malaysia.
