Returning individuals will have to bear the costs of their own quarantine.

Since the start of MCO, All returning citizens and non-citizens allowed into the country are subjected to a mandatory 14-day quarantine period upon arrival. While the government bore the costs of quarantine for the first few months of the MCO, individuals returning into the country were expected to cover their own costs in June.

What do you guys think of this?
