Only 10,350 allowed at KLCC event

PUTRAJAYA: The 100 days of #KeluargaMalaysia Aspiration programme at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) will be held with strict adherence to the standard operating procedure (SOP) from Dec 9-12 to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

“We will ensure that this programme does not pose the risk of Covid-19 infection,” said National Security Council (NSC) director-general Datuk Rodzi Md Saad in a media conference here.

The programme, hosted by the Prosperity Delivery Unit under the Prime Minister’s Department will feature ministries’ achievement gallery, aid programme, displays by ministries and agencies, cultural performances, career fair, exhibitions as well as product sales by entrepreneurs.

Rodzi said the SOP included limiting the number of visitors to only 10,350 at a time compared to the convention centre’s capacity which can reach over 20,000 people, adding that the organiser had been reminded to ensure physical distancing throughout the programme.He said during the opening ceremony to be officiated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob tomorrow, only 272 guests and 11 VIP guests would be allowed to attend, compared to the original capacity of 2,000 people.

Rodzi said visitors must be fully vaccinated, adding that children under 12 would be allowed to enter with fully vaccinated parents or guardians.

The ventilation system at the event site must be in good condition, he said, adding that only packaged food was allowed.

According to Bernama, Rodzi said Fire and Rescue Department personnel would carry out sanitation operations everyday at 11pm.

“If a positive Covid-19 case is detected at the event, immediate sanitation operation will be conducted and NSC will refer to health experts for further action,” he said.

The event starts from 9am until 10pm.

The Keluarga Malaysia concept based on the values of inclusivity, togetherness and gratitude was introduced by Ismail Sabri in his inaugural speech after being appointed as the ninth Prime Minister in August.
