Calling all love birds and social butterflies, the government has announced that it will allow weddings and other social events to be held starting 1 July, said Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob today.
However, the limit for a social gathering will be 250 people within a time limit of five hours maximum. Other SOPs must be carried out as well, such as maintaining social distancing, registration of guests and health check at entrances, as reported by Free Malaysia Today.
He also said that food will be allowed to be served buffet-style, as long as it is served by waiters, as opposed to guests taking the food themselves.
Event organisers are required to register and conduct temperature checks of their guests either manually or using MySejahtera app.
“Those with symptoms cannot attend these ceremonies. For example, if they have a fever or flu, they cannot attend. Guests are also encouraged to wear face masks,” he said during his regular briefing today.
Although social events are now allowed to be held, Ismail said if organisers feel they cannot control a crowd and ensure social distancing, then it’s best to avoid throwing such a gathering. Furthermore, police will continue to monitor and check if SOPs are being followed.
Other than that, activities that will resume soon also include swimming as well as other recreational water activities.
