KOTA KINABALU: Sabahans now only have to show they have tested negative in a Covid-19 swab test taken within three days and no longer have to undergo 14-day quarantine before they are allowed to travel to other states in Malaysia.
Sabah Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said this would come into effect starting Wednesday (Nov 25).
"Starting Nov 25, travellers from Sabah only need to undergo a Covid-19 swab test three days before leaving for other states in Malaysia.
"If the individual is found positive with the virus or have symptoms, they will not be allowed to continue with their journey.
"Those who test positive will be referred to the hospital for isolation and treatment, while those experiencing symptoms will be referred for further check-ups.
"If the individual has no symptoms and the lab results come back negative, the traveller no longer needs to undergo a 14-day quarantine," said Masidi in a statement on Tuesday (Nov 24).
He added that the Covid-19 swab test report would be inspected and the use of the MySejahtera app is required upon arriving at the entry gates in Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Labuan.
