There will no longer be a change in one’s MySejahtera risk status if they are a casual contact of an individual tested positive for COVID-19.
Previously, the MySejahtera application will change the risk status of an individual with exposure to a COVID-19-positive case to “Casual Contact” with a yellow background.
“From today, your risk status will no longer change. You will get a notification instead. If you have symptoms, isolate and test,” Health Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar said in a Twitter post yesterday.
In the same post, Khairy Jamaluddin also shared several screenshots of the MySejahtera app that illustrated its new close contact notifications.
“(The) MySejahtera automated contact tracing system has identified you as a Casual Contact. If you develop symptoms, please do a self test. You are not subjected to any restrictions but please adhere to SOPs at all times. Stay safe.”
