Checking-in either manually or via MySejahtera has always been mandatory per individual when you’re out in public areas.

A group of eight students went out to a restaurant in Melaka and were divided into two tables with four people occupying a single table. Only two of them checked in via MySejahtera as the group believed that only one representative from each table needed to scan. However, when patrolling authorities arrived at the premises, they issued an RM1,000 fine to the remaining six students who didn’t check-in, reported Sin Chew Daily.

Upon further investigation of the premises, the police also discovered that the restaurant’s manager had just returned from vacation to handle business affairs. As the manager himself didn’t scan his MySejahtera, he was also given the compound fine for not enforcing SOPs or training his staff to take the temperature of customers and check-in.

Melaka Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department Chief Asst Comm, Beh En Lai, said that 747 fines have been issued to citizens for the violation of SOPs from the start of the month to 20th October. “50% of them didn’t wear masks. 30% of them didn’t practice physical distancing and the other 20% consists of individuals who didn’t scan MySejahtera or staff who didn’t enforce SOPs such as taking temperature.”

Meanwhile, Khairuddin, the minister who violated SOPs in July and left his home quarantine to attend parliament proceedings has just been left off the hook yesterday (21 October) after police confirmed that they will take “no further action” against him following the fine imposed by the Ministry of Health.
