Anyone entering the state of Sarawak will be required to undergo 14-days quarantine at designated hotels within the state.
What you need to know: The mandatory quarantine will take place at designated hotels at the travellers’ final destination. Travellers would have their samples taken on the second day of their quarantine, and would only be released if test results are negative of Covid-19. The quarantine directive includes Malaysians who are travelling from the peninsula, Sabah and Labuan.
Who said what: Sarawak state Disaster Management Committee chairman Datuk Douglas Uggah Embas said that the mandatory quarantine will take effect from 1 August until 14 August. The committee is also considering stricter Covid-19 measures such as inter-district travel ban, reducing the number of commercial flights and limiting business operating hours but no decision has been made yet.
Why it matters: Tertiary students and teachers have begun returning to campuses in phases this July, largely travelling by flight between East and West Malaysia with special discounts offered by local airlines. The mass interstate travel is expected to continue until students fully return to their respective campuses in October.
