PETALING JAYA: Failing to update your health status in the MySejahtera app is not an offence but doing so is the responsible thing, says Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
"While not updating the application of your status is not an offence, we must also have integrity and be responsible users.
"This is because the application was created by the government to assist in controlling the spread of infection and to allow users to perform health evaluations.
"As such, the application is not just used to scan codes so that we can enter a place. Also important is that the status is updated constantly, depending on our daily activities and movement," he said in his daily statement on Monday (June 7).
He also urged all users to be truthful when submitting any information especially when it came to symptoms.
Noting the recent confusion which led to several compound notices being issued, he urged all enforcement agents to not misinterpret the standard operating procedures (SOP).
"I urge that any compound notices issued for these matters are cancelled.
"Any misunderstanding and confusion that has arisen must be rectified. I urge understanding from all sides so that we can work together in flattening the curve of infection," he said.
It was reported that 31 factory workers in Manjung, Perak, were issued compound notices for failing to update their health status in the MySejahtera app during an SOP monitoring operation on Saturday (June 5).
The incident caused some concern among the public as to whether or not they need to update their health status daily.
