It’s all through MySejahtera for Miri Division

Date:

MIRI: Starting Oct 1, the issuance of quarantine orders and quarantine release letters (release orders) for Covid-19 positive cases and close contacts in Miri Division will be done through the MySejahtera app.

According to the Miri Division Disaster Management Committee (DDMC), individuals confirmed positive would have the results displayed in MySejahtera along with the quarantine period.

“Individuals who are close contacts must declare in their MySejahtera.

“They will then be alerted of their status after answering a few questions, and a digital quarantine order stating the quarantine period will be shown in their MySejahtera,” it said on Friday (Oct 1).

Miri DDMC stressed that individuals with a digital quarantine order through MySejahtera must comply with the quarantine period specified.

“Failure to comply is an offence under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 [Act 342] and is liable to a compound of RM4,000.

“Random monitoring will also be carried out by enforcement officers.”

After finishing the quarantine period, the individual’s digital quarantine order would display the word ‘Completed’.

“For working individuals, a digital quarantine order can be used as proof to inform the employer or head of department regarding his or her quarantine order.

“The display of ‘Completed’ on the individual’s digital quarantine order can also be used as evidence to inform the employer or head of department regarding the termination of the individual’s quarantine.

“As such, quarantine order letters and positive case quarantine release letters, and close contacts will no longer be printed and given to individuals in paper form.

“However, quarantine orders will still be issued in rural areas without Internet access and telephone lines.

“This digital quarantine order initiative is only focused on urban and town areas.”
