IPOH: Workers at factories that have Covid-19 cases need to declare their health status daily using the MySejahtera app as it is part of the manufacturing sector standard operating procedures (SOP).

Perak Health director Datuk Dr Ding Lay Ming said this was part of the SOP to manage premises with positive cases.

"It's listed under the positive case management topic (of the National Security Council SOP)," she said on Monday (June 7).

News of factory workers in Manjung being issued compound notices for not updating their health status in the MySejahtera app had caused concern among the public.

It was reported that staff members from an oil and gas company and a chicken processing factory were issued with compounds of between RM1,500 and RM2,000.

The police also said it was not required for the public to update their health status every day.

Those wanting to enter a shopping complex, for example, would need to scan their MySejahtera app or record their personal details in a logbook manually.

Shopping complex employees are also required to ensure that only customers with "low risk" or "casual contact low risk" statuses are allowed onto the premises.
