KUALA LUMPUR, 21 January 2022: The Ministry of Health has agreed to remove the mandatory temperature checks from the COVID-19 standard operating procedures (SOP) at public premises, Khairy Jamaluddin said.

“This proposal will be brought to the weekly Quartet Ministers meeting and the National Security Council (NSC) for endorsement,” he told a press conference yesterday.

However, the Minister stated that individuals were still required to scan the MySejahtera app and show their vaccination certificates before entering shops and restaurants.

“The Ministry also suggests that people switch on the MySejahtera bluetooth tracing feature for contact tracing.

“It is not mandatory but highly recommended. The feature will inform you if you are a casual contact. It does not mean you have to be quarantined, you just monitor yourself for symptoms,” Khairy said.***
