Ismail Sabri: No more quarantine for Malaysian oil rig workers, requirement stands for foreigners

For the historical record. Though things have changed.

Deadline 2020-08-25, The Star:

Malaysians oil and gas workers are no longer required to undergo mandatory quarantine when signing on or off from offshore platforms, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

“Malaysians only need to take swab tests before they sign-on to the platforms and do not need to be quarantined. When they are supposed to return onshore, they do not need to be quarantined and can return to their hometowns after being screened,” the Senior Minister (Security) said at a press conference here, Tuesday (Aug 25).

Foreigners, however, are still required to take the swab test and undergo 14 days’ quarantine.
