Individuals who take off their wristbands while undergoing the Quarantine Order (QO) are liable to a compound fine, said Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar during the press conference yesterday.

The minister also explained that the wristband will be removed from those who complete the QO.

“Public health workers will do it, either by video call or in person, without any prior notification,” he said.

The minister also disclosed that following the implementation, colour-coded wristbands have been issued to 200 individuals undergoing the QO, “as a way to move forward”.
