“Similarly, it is compulsory to open and lower down the vehicle’s windows for better air circulation and to prevent using the air conditioner while being inside the vehicle.

“All personnel and candidates must also adhere to health protocols set by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and implement new standards such as body temperature checks, MySejahtera scans, physical distancing, face masks, and hand sanitation before entering the premises,” he added.
