Aside from making it easier to show the risk level and vaccination status of a user, the new MySejahtera update will also add a “check out” button. When you’re leaving a particular premise, you are now required to confirm that you have checked out of the location.
According to the Minister of Health, Khairy Jamaluddin, this is done to improve contact tracing. It makes sense: if you’ve checked out before an infected person checks in to a certain premise, you won’t be affected.
Of course, in order to check out, you won’t need to scan any MySejahtera QR code again. All you have to do is to just hit the check out button right below the name of the premise, as shown in the screenshots above.
The new update for the MySejahtera app is being pushed out tonight, though it’s not available for download yet at the time of writing. Nonetheless, it’s safe to assume the new update will go live tomorrow.
