Dear Travellers, Travel & Media Partners,
In the wake of the outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-2019), we would like to bring to your attention the latest updates on the travel situation in Malaysia:
Dear Friends of Malaysia,
Beginning August 1, the Government has made it compulsory for the public to wear masks in crowded areas and on public transportation. The decision was made in line with the efforts to effectively reduce the possibility of virus transmission, especially since the reopening of various economic sectors, including domestic tourism.
Following the instruction, the public may also opt to use non-medical face masks or home-made masks, provided that they adhere to the specifics as issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO). WHO recommends face masks that are made from fabric with three layers. Below are the recommended criteria for the three layers:
In addition, the public is advised to fully comply with the social distancing measure and adhere to other SOPs such as temperature screening and avoiding crowded and cramped spaces.
As of July 24, Malaysia sees three more cases of recovery which brings the total rate of recovery to 96.79%.
Stay safe, stay vigilant.
