Is it true that you must scan MySejahtera at petrol stations, or you will get a RM1,000 fine?
PDRM says yes, but CPRC says no, so which is it??? Here is the final word, hopefully!
Register MySejahtera At Petrol Station, Or Get RM1K Fine?
According to PDRM, you must scan MySejahtera at the petrol station, even if you do not enter the convenience store. Otherwise, you could be subject to a RM1,000 fine!
Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department deputy director DCP Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said, “If the people do not register or scan, how will the police trace them if there are Covid-19 cases in the area?”
As petrol stations are high-traffic public spaces, it is mandatory to register your visit using MySejahtera, as well as wear a face mask have your temperature scanned, and use a hand sanitiser.
However, petrol station operators may not be aware of this requirement either, as they do not put up MySejahtera QR codes at their pumps for motorists to register their visits…
But CPRC Said MySejahtera Not Necessary At Petrol Station…
This email shows the CPRC (Crisis Preparedness and Respose Centre) team saying that it is NOT necessary to scan MySejahtera at the petrol station, if you are only refuelling at the pump or making payment.
So is it, or is it not necessary to scan MySejahtera at petrol stations??? Sadly, it appears that CPRC and PDRM are not on the same page.

MySejahtera : Why Scan It At Petrol Stations?
MySejahtera is a mobile app developed by the Malaysian government. It serves as a contact tracing tool, as well as a way to disseminate verified information on COVID-19 in Malaysia.
Its users can log their movements by quickly and simply scanning a QR code at public places. This is a safer option to signing a logbook, because you won’t need to touch the logbook or use a shared pen.
Even though petrol pumps in Malaysia are generally self-served, petrol stations are high traffic public areas with pump attendants and employees, as well as other customers, who may be infected.
Scanning MySejahtera at the petrol station will allow the authorities to quickly and accurately perform contact tracing if any infected person was at the petrol station.
That’s probably why PDRM made it mandatory to scan MySejahtera at the petrol station, even if you don’t enter the convenience store.
