Customers do not need to use the MySejahtera app if they do not enter the store section of petrol stations to make payments for fuel, Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob said today.
He said the same applies to those who pay using credit or debit cards, online transactions, and through the cashier’s window, as well as those who use the station’s pumps to inflate their vehicles’ tyres or the automatic car wash services.
He added that individuals who make payments or transactions in the store section, whether for fuel or the purchase of items, or use the ATM for withdrawals, are required to register either manually or using the MySejahtera app.
“Those using the surau or toilet also have to scan the MySejahtera app or register their details,” he said.
“The same applies to those who send their vehicles to workshops at petrol stations and use the manual car wash services.”
Speaking at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur, he said the decision was made by the National Security Council.
He also said the government had agreed to expand the work-from-home ruling to cover civil servants nationwide as it was aware of the difficulties parents faced following the closure of schools and childcare centres in states placed under conditional movement control order (CMCO).
He said those in non-CMCO states – Perlis, Kelantan, and Pahang – would also be allowed to work from home.
Those in the industrial sector meanwhile must wait for further announcements by the international trade and industry ministry regarding permission to work from home.
Ismail said this does not apply to those working in the informal sector such as retail, shopping complexes, plantations, and agriculture.
