Greetings! Thank you for your question.

You may directly visit the hospitals in this list for a COVID-19 screening test. (Designated Hospital for COVID-19). Besides, do practice good hand hygiene and wear your face mask in public.

The best time to book PCR test is as soon as possible because you do not want the places to be grabbed quickly. I suggest you to do the PCR test 2 days before your flight

I would encourage you to answer this quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate your health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. Further instructions will be given at the end of the quiz. Please act accordingly.

You may consult a MOH doctor by clicking Ask Doctor at the Ministry of Health website (COVID-19 Portal) to ask any health issues related to COVID-19 starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.

After 5.00 pm till 12.00 am, please direct your enquiries to our DoctorOnCall website at this link https://www.doctoroncall.com.my/tanya/.
