Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that, starting 10 June 2020, Malaysians returning from overseas will no longer be required to serve their 14-day quarantine period in government-gazetted facilities.
However, the 14-day quarantine is still compulsory for all returning Malaysians. But they are allowed to do so from the comforts of their own homes.
All returning Malaysians will go through health screening upon arrival. Should they test negative, they will be allowed to return home. Those who test positive will be sent to hospitals for treatment.
The minister said that those who are allowed to be home-quarantined will be monitored via the MySejahtera app. They will also be given quarantine wristbands to wear throughout this period.
Anyone who failed to adhere to the compulsory quarantine requirement and SOP will be fined RM1,000 and be brought to court.Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob
Ismail Sabri mentioned that the decision was made based on data regarding the percentage of returning Malaysians who tested positive, as well as improving situation in many countries.
