M’sia, S’pore discuss reentry

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysians who work in Singapore can return once both governments reach a resolution as Singapore’s circuit breaker measures ended on June 1.

Discussions are now being held and Malaysians can travel back and forth again once the terms have been outlined, especially those living in Johor, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

“Malaysia is prepared to agree to Malaysians undergoing Covid-19 screening before resuming work in Singapore.

“The government thanks Yayasan Sultan Ibrahim, the Temasek group and the Thompson Medical Group in Singapore for their offer to contribute test kits and two mobile Covid-19 test laboratories, ” he said.

Ismail Sabri recommended those working in Singapore to download the MySejahtera app.

On another matter, Malaysians in quarantine centres can continue their quarantine at home when the recovery movement control order (MCO) starts on Wednesday.

Ismail Sabri said even if Malaysians had just a few days to complete their 14-day quarantine at the centres as the conditional MCO ends today, they would be allowed to spend the remaining days at home, provided they download the MySejahtera app.

“They cannot go home any earlier than that because the new rules for the recovery MCO will only take effect on June 10, ” he said.

The government, Ismail Sabri said, would continue to conduct public sanitisation during the recovery MCO period.
