PETALING JAYA: The MySejahtera app has included a new feature that requires individuals to attach or upload a photo when updating their Covid-19 self-test results.
Users also will be required to answer several questions, including where was the test conducted, when was it taken as well as the outcome of the test.
Previously, users only needed to fill up a form and declare whether the result was positive, negative, or invalid.
With the latest MySejahtera version (Android, iOS, and Huawei), the form now appears as a single page and one must attach a photo of the result to proceed.
Meanwhile, according to the latest protocol published on Feb 17, close contacts individuals are now required to test themselves only if they have symptoms.
All close contacts who have received boosters are required to isolate themselves for five days.
If an individual tested positive, current Covid-19 protocols must be adhered to.
At the moment, individuals who are fully vaccinated and contracted Covid-19 are only required to be quarantined for seven days.
Individuals without complete vaccinations are still required to be quarantined for 10 days.
The Health Ministry had also previously recommended the public to take a Covid-19 self-test before attending any gatherings or events.
