KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah state government decided to ban travellers from India, France, the United States, Africa and Brazil to the state to curb the spread of COVID-19, Chief Minister Datuk Hajiji Noor said.


He said the ban is also an important step to stop new COVID-19 variants detected in India from spreading to the state.


“Exceptions will be given to Sabahans, married couples and children of Sabahans only, but they need to adhere to the 14-day quarantine at gazetted quarantine stations,” he said in a statement here.


He said ship crews with travel histories from India in the past 14 days will not be allowed to undergo the signoff procedure in the state.


Exceptions will be given to Malaysian ship crew but they will still need to undergo the 14-day quarantine process at gazetted quarantine stations, he said, adding that the orders will come into effect from tomorrow (April 28). -Bernama
