In a recent press conference on 27 April 2022 (Wednesday), Malaysia's Minister of Health Khairy Jamaluddin has announced a series of updates as it progresses to its endemic stage. Find the full compiled list of announcements below:
Wearing a face mask is compulsory when in a building (indoor) and on public transport including e-hailing rides. However, the use of face masks outdoors and in open areas is optional but highly recommended as face masks are able to reduce the spread of infection. Physical distancing will also no longer be required between individuals.
In light of the upcoming Aidilfitri, open houses or Hari Raya events indoors are allowed on the condition of wearing a face mask. Solat Sunat Hari Raya is also allowed in mosques or suraus with 100% capacity.
While individuals may enter into premises regardless of their vaccination status without using the MySejahtera application, if they are COVID-19 positive, or under a home surveillance order, they will be prohibited from entering.
Those who are COVID-19 positive must undergo quarantine for seven days, and will be released from it if tested negative on day four.
COVID-19 detection testing prior to departing for Malaysia and upon arrival is no longer required for travellers aged 13 years and above who have completed vaccination; those with a history of COVID-19 infection within six to 60 days from the date of departure, and travellers aged 12 and below, regardless of vaccination status.
