KUALA LUMPUR – It’s no longer a must to put on a face mask in any enclosed area in Malaysia, except in public transportation and medical facilities.
“The use of face masks indoors is now optional. This takes immediate effect,” Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin told a press conference yesterday.
However, property owners have the discretion to enforce a face mask requirement on visitors.
“If the owners of the premises decide to impose a face mask ruling on patrons, the visitors must abide by it. The owners have the right to refuse entry for those who do not comply,” said Khairy.
