PUTRAJAYA: Wedding receptions in areas under the conditional movement control order (MCO) will be permitted, with additional standard operating procedures (SOPs) in place.
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said that aside from existing SOPs such as social distancing, recording attendance and temperatures, Rela personnel are to be stationed at these events.
"The Rela personnel are there to make sure those who attend wedding receptions follow the SOPs," he said on Friday (Oct 9).
He said the wedding reception hosts are to engage the services of Rela officers and the number depends on the number of guests.
Receptions at hotels will be monitored by the hotel management team.
Ismail Sabri said guests who are from outside the conditional MCO areas are required to show the wedding invitation to the police at roadblocks.
"We are allowing receptions to be held, because we hear the concerns of those who have set dates, booked halls and catering for such events.
"But, please make sure SOPs are followed not just by those organising or hosting the wedding receptions, but also the guests," he said.
