No more temperature checks at schools from tomorrow [NSTTV]

KUALA LUMPUR: Schools under the Education Ministry’s purview are not required to record their attendee’s body temperature upon entrance from tomorrow (Feb 11).

The Education Ministry, in a statement today said, however, those attending schools are still required to scan the MySejahtera QR code upon entrance.

“The teachers, Anggota Kumpulan Pelaksana (AKP) members, support service workers and visitors are still required to get themselves checked-in digitally.

“Parents and guardians are also advised to ensure students are in good health and do not have any symptoms of health problems before attending schools,” said the statement.

The ministry said students who have any symptoms, close contact with family members who contracted Covid-19 or living in the same house with a Covid-19 patient are not allowed to attend schools.

“The students’ health status will be regularly monitored while they are at school.

“Those who develop or show symptoms of health problems while at school will be placed in an isolation room for further action”.

The ministry said the new ruling applies to all educational institutions under their purview, including those who are not registered under them.
