He said condominiums or apartments could introduce this requirement to ensure the safety of other residents.
"Yes, this is to protect the health of the residents. The condominium or apartment management are allowed to make such a rule. So we do not stop them," he said in his daily press briefing on Thursday (Jan 28).
He said the government had no problem if the residence management wanted to impose such regulations though there was no such policy from the National Security Council (NSC).
Property management experts have criticised several condominiums for requiring their residents to get tested for Covid-19.
Ng Wei Aik, a registered property manager and former Tanjong MP, told malaysiakini that there were no laws in Malaysia that allowed property management to bar residents from entering.
Such measures are considered as denying an owner's right to the property, he said.
