Zone One (Covid-19 Yellow / Red Zones)

  • Kuching
  • Serian
  • Samarahan

Zone Two (Covid-19 Green Zones)

  • Sri Aman
  • Betong
  • Sarikei
  • Kapit
  • Mukah
  • Bintulu

Any individual who wants to move between designated zones must first get permission from the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), while movement within the zone is allowed.

Sarawak recently announced that travellers will have to undergo mandatory quarantine after the state recorded an increase in Covid-19 infections with a few clusters reported in the past few weeks.

The state is also looking at other measures such as shortening opening hours for businesses.
