KOTA KINABALU — June 2, 2020: Malaysians entering Sabah will not longer be required to be on a mandatory two-week quarantine but must first be certified negative of the virus.
In announcing the decision here today, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal said this applies to everyone, regardless how they arrive.
They must however be first certified free of Covid-19, with the test done three days before arrival from Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Labuan.
A letter from the Health Ministry to validate the negative tests must be shown on arrival.
The state government is hoping that the decision will help spur domestic tourism, with hotels in the state reopening since May 10.
