All non-Muslim places of worship can now operate but with one-third of usual capacity, says Ismail Sabri

PUTRAJAYA: All 5,230 non-Muslim places of worship can now operate, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister said the time and days of operation are as per their normal operating schedule before the movement control order (MCO) was imposed.

However, these places are expected to ensure that the standard operating procedure is adhered to by the worshippers such as social distancing and taking temperature before joining the congregation.

"These houses of worship can only take in one-third of their usual capacity and attendees must download the MySejahtera application," he said on Monday (June 15).

Ismail Sabri said while this is general approval given by the Federal Government, it would be up to the respective state governments to decide on when the places of worship start opening their doors," he said.
