GOMBAK, 24 February 2022:  As Malaysia prepares to move into the endemic phase,  Covid-19 self-testing is one of the tools to manage new infections without the need for another lockdown. Regardless of whether your result is positive or negative, you should always report it through the MySejahtera app. Now there’s a new update and you are now required to attach or snap a photo of your test result.

Previously, all you’ll need is to fill up a form and declare whether your result is positive, negative, or invalid. With the latest MySejahtera version (AndroidiOS, and Huawei), the form now appears as a single page and you must attach a photo of the result to proceed.

Malay Mail reported that it is recommended that you conduct a Covid-19 self-test before attending a gathering or event, or if you’re experiencing Covid-19 symptoms such as sore throat, cough, flu, or fever. If you were in close contact with a Covid-19 case, Health director-general Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah had recommended conducting a Covid-19 self-test at least five days after contact.

According to the latest protocol published on 17 February, close contacts are now required to test themselves only if there are symptoms. All close contacts who have received boosters are required to isolate themselves for five days.
