With the number of COVID-19 cases rising in Malaysia, here’s a timely reminder – register yourself at all public places using MySejahtera or the logbook, or get fined RM1,000!
MySejahtera / Logbook : Register Or Get Fined RM1,000!
Malaysia has so far weathered the COVID-19 pandemic with relatively few cases, thanks to a relative strict Movement Control Order, and a mandatory requirement to wear a face mask in public from 1 August 2020 onwards.
But with the surging number of new cases, the Malaysian government appears to be ramping up enforcement checks on businesses.
Malaysian netizens have shared videos and photos of recent enforcement checks, where those who did not register themselves either using the MySejahtera app or a logbook were fined RM1,000 per person!
MySejahtera : What Is It?
MySejahtera is a mobile app developed by the Malaysian government. It serves as a contact tracing tool, as well as a way to disseminate verified information on COVID-19 in Malaysia.
Its users can log their movements by quickly and simply scanning a QR code at public places. This is a safer option to signing a logbook, because you won’t need to touch the logbook or use a shared pen.
MySejahtera / Logbook : What’s The SOP?
On 4 October 2020, the Malaysia Ministry of Health issued another reminder on the mandatory registration SOP using MySejahtera or a logbook.
Please note that EVERY PERSON – including children and domestic helpers – must be registered. If they do not have a smartphone, they must register using the logbook.
Also, if you are registering yourself using the physical logbook, please write in your FULL NAME and telephone number. You can be fined if you write in only your first name.
- Make sure visitors undergo temperature screening and scan the QR code using MySejahtera
- In the event you do not have a QR code, make sure visitors record their particulars in a logbook
- Make sure visitors with symptoms or high risk status are not allowed into your premise
Members Of The Public
- Make sure you perform temperature screening and scan the QR code using the MySejahtera app, or record your details in the logbook, every time you enter a premise.
- Perform a risk analysis from time to time.
Those who fail to register themselves at public premises risk being fined RM1,000 per person, per offence.
The Malaysia Ministry of Health has proposed that this fine be increased to RM10,000. The proposal was submitted to the Malaysian Parliament in August 2020, but has yet to be approved.
