Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has urged employers to revert to work-from-home policies to slow down workplace infections.

New Covid-19 cases have been rising rapidly in recent weeks now. Hence, returning to remote work can prevent further spread, which is essential to preventing escalation, says Khairy according to NST.

Therefore, where possible, face-to-face or physical meetings can be avoided for now. The ministry strongly recommends employers to encourage work from home or remote working.

However, Khairy also reassures that the country can weather through the wave of Omicron cases. Unlike last year when Malaysia battled the Delta wave, the population is much more prepared with a high fully-vaccinated rate and much lower number of serious cases (those in Category 3, 4, or 5).

Still, WFH is a precaution to prevent further outbreaks.

Khairy also urges everyone to continue following current SOPs, such as washing your hands, maintaining social distancing, and ensuring good ventilation in your home.
