No Need To Update MySejahtera Daily, Fines Cancelled!


No Need To Update MySejahtera Daily, Fines Cancelled!

We fact-checked the claims yesterday, noting that updating our COVID-19 status in MySejahtera isn’t even required in the General COVID-19 SOP or even the Manufacturing SOP.

But we still get people questioning our fact-check, so here is DEFINITIVE CONFIRMATION on this controversy. Please read this and STOP SHARING FAKE NEWS!

No Requirement To Update MySejahtera Every Day!

The Director General of the National Security Council (MKN) Mohd Rabin bin Basir confirmed that there is no requirement to update your COVID-19 status in MySejahtera every day.

It is not in the General COVID-19 SOP, and as we explained in our fact-check, it’s not even in the Manufacturing SOP.

In fact, the latest 31 May 2021 Manufacturing SOP only required daily COVID-19 status updates for workers who were found to be COVID-19 positive, or close contacts.

RM2K Fine For Not Updating MySejahtera Status Every Day?

Only Update MySejahtera In Certain Situations

He confirmed this with Raja Zawawi from the Ministry of Health, who said that only those who experienced symptoms or travelled overseas should take the COVID-19 survey to update their status in MySejahtera.

Based on the questions, you only need to retake the COVID-19 survey test, and update your status in MySejahtera if :

  • you experienced symptoms like cough, breathing difficulty, loss of smell, loss of taste
  • attended events or went to a location associated with a COVID-19 cluster
  • travelled overseas before experiencing symptoms
  • been in close contact with any confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases before experiencing symptoms
  • been a MOH COVID-19 volunteer in the last 14 days

Factory Fines To Be Cancelled

The Director General of MKN “advised” the Manjung Police to “take appropriate action and request that the District Health Office cancel the fine“.
