Ismail Sabri: Tourism activities allowed in states under CMCO, RMCO

PETALING JAYA: States under the conditional and recovery movement control orders will be allowed to resume tourism, culture and arts activities, says Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Defence Minister said this means that attractions such as nature parks, museums and outdoor theme parks can welcome visitors and audiences once more but with strict standard operating procedures (SOPs) in place.

Attractions in states under the conditional MCO can only accommodate visitors up to 50% of the usual capacity while tourist and cultural attractions in Perlis, which is the only state under the recovery MCO, can have more visitors as long as physical distancing is practised.

Other SOPs such as registering details or scanning MySejahtera and temperature checks will continue to be in place.

Ismail Sabri also said 20 people, not including the marriage official and witnesses, are allowed at Muslim marriage solemnisation ceremonies (Akad Nikah) at mosques in MCO states.

"This means that each family can have up to 10 family members at the ceremony.

"However, state religious authorities will need to agree to our proposal first as mosques and religious offices come under them," he said.

Previously, Ismail Sabri said only five people were allowed at marriage solemnisation ceremonies at religious offices.

In states under conditional MCO, the number of people allowed at solemnisation ceremonies is limited to 50% of a venue's capacity, he said.

There is no limit imposed in Perlis, but hosts must ensure that guests practise physical distancing and other SOP.
