Low-Risk Covid-19 Patients Can Now Quarantine In Hotels If They Want To

Covid-19 patients who are low risk and asymptomatic can now choose to stay at designated hotels, with the permission of medical officers. MyEG has recently launched an online portal – SafeQ, which offers an array of hotel accommodation and amenity options available to low-risk Covid-19 patients who wish to undergo mandatory quarantine requirements in more comfortable settings.

MyEG explained that low-risk Covid-19 patients who prefer not to undergo quarantine at home, Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS), or any other low-risk quarantine and treatment centres (PKRC) have the option to stay at any participating hotels through www.safeq.com.my. Eligibility of individuals to undergo quarantine at any of the available hotels would be subject to verification by MyEG with health authorities.

However, these low-risk patients would have to pay for their stay at these hotels on their own, or have their employers do so. Strict SOPs will be adhered to at all times during quarantine period at all hotels, with government personnel stationed at all the approved hotels to ensure full compliance.

Currently, the hotels available for booking on SafeQ in Kuala Lumpur are The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur and Silka Cheras. Even more hotel options, from 3-star to 5-star hotels, will subsequently be added to the portal to cater to all budgets. Patients who are looking for more comfortable and luxurious accommodations at upscale participating hotels will have more choices.
