Malaysians returning from overseas will no longer be allowed to quarantine at home, said Defence Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri at a live press conference today.
“Starting this Friday (24th July), all Malaysian citizens, including foreigners allowed to enter the country are subjected to be quarantined in government quarantine centres,” as said in a statement released by the National Security Council (MKN)’s Telegram group. Since the announcement, it’s also been discovered that those subjected to this ruling are also expected to bear the full cost of quarantine themselves.
“Quarantine at home is no longer permitted starting this Friday,” added Ismail Sabri.
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.
