Returning from Singapore

Hi Doctor,

I’ve travelled to Singapore before Malaysia MCO started and got my visit pass extended to 12th May by Singapore ICA. Since 7th April, Singapore had exercise Circuit Breaker and I have been staying home and have no health issue.

My question is, since I’ve undergone Circuit Breaker in Singapore, do I still need to undergo quarantine in Malaysia upon returning home? Can I perform a COVID swab test in Singapore to provide as proof so that I don’t have to undergo quarantine?

Hope to hear your advise. Thank you very much

Greetings, thank you for your question.

It would be great if you have a written letter and have been screened for the virus in Singapore. If you are confirm to be negative from the disease, you will still need to quarantine yourself for another 14 days.

For more information on coronavirus, please visit the official Ministry of Health portal at link here (MOH COVID-19 Portal). You can also consult a doctor for free regarding your condition by clicking Ask Doctor link on the portal.
