Continue Practising COVID-19 Preventive Measures

Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Doctor Haji Awang Mohd Isham also expressed his deepest appreciation and congratulations to all parties including the public who have supported the Government's efforts to increase the rate of COVID -19 vaccination in the country. With the cooperation and hard work of all parties, the country has entered the Transition Phase. However, the public should not be complacent or overly excited with the achievement.

The Minister of Health reminded the public to continue to practice COVID-19 preventive and control measures as in the previous Preparation and Containment Phases. Continue to wear a face mask especially when entering premises or if in a crowded public place; Practice physical distancing at all times and maintain personal hygiene by regularly washing hands with soap and water or by using hand sanitiser. Employers who want to know the COVID 19 status of employees do not need to instruct employees to undergo a RT-PCR-SARS-Co-V-2 swab test before they return to work today.

Employers or company managers can obtain the Antigen Rapid Test, ART, kits that are available in the local market for use at their respective premises AND continue the support and cooperation provided so that the country will achieve the next target of 80 per cent of the population completing the COVID-19 vaccination. As explained in several previous media conferences, the Transition Phase only allows those fully vaccinated to enter any premises. However, anyone who does not have that information in their BruHealth app, they can show their vaccination book as proof. This includes vaccination books or certificates from abroad for those who have completed their vaccination overseas.
