Malaysia lifts indoor mask mandate for non-vulnerable settings

Following on from its removal of outdoor masking requirements in May this year, Malaysia has now also ended its indoor masking mandate.

With effect September 7, mask wearing indoors will only be required on public transport and healthcare facilities.

Mask-wearing indoors are no longer required in Malaysia, unless in vulnerable environments such as hospitals and on public transport

However, health minister Khairy Jamaluddin said masks are “highly encouraged” for crowded indoor settings.

Meanwhile, premise owners are free to decide on masking requirements for their premises.
