The Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister of Finance and Economy explained that by the consent of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, the COVID-19 Steering Committee announced on several updates to COVID-19 control measures which will commence on Wednesday, 15th June 2022.
This includes the scanning of BruHealth QR codes, which was previously required prior to entering any premises to assist the Ministry of Health in contact tracing for COVID-19 positive cases, will no longer be required. However, the management of premises or event organisers may ask members of the public or event attendees to scan the BruHealth QR code before entering premises.
In this regard, the COVID-19 Steering Committee also wishes to inform that the BruHealth application has begun to be developed as a health management application for long-term use that is not limited to times of pandemic only. The BruHealth application code scanning features will continue to be used for healthy lifestyle programmes or other programmes available in the application. To this end, the use of the BruHealth app in the country, including QR code scanning will not be completely discontinued and will be adapted for other uses.
Scheduled ART in offices and workplaces will also be ceased. However, ART testing is required for symptomatic individuals, close contacts to a positive case and other circumstances where required such as before attending an event. However, the public are advised to do their own ART from time to time.
