Deepavali is just around the corner and with the lockdowns just passing, we still need to ensure there isn’t a sudden burst in Covid-19 cases.

Hence why the authorities have announced the Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) for Deepavali.

Kementerian Perpaduan Negara took to their Twitter page to share the SOPs.

Deepavali 3

The SOPs are as follows:

For those in Phase 3

  • Religious activities at houses of worship are only for those who are fully vaccinated, while still taking into considering the size of the temple and maintaining a 1-meter physical distance between worshippers.
  • Religious activities are only allowed between 6am to 2pm and 4pm to 10pm.
  • Dine-in at houses of worship is not allowed, only packed food is allowed for devotees to bring home.

 

For those in Phase 4

  • Religious activities at houses of worship are only for those who are fully vaccinated, while still taking into considering the size of the temple and maintaining a 1-meter physical distance between worshippers.
  • Religious activities can be carried out based on the times seen appropriate by the houses of worship.
  • Dine-in at houses of worship is not allowed, only packed food is allowed for devotees to bring home.

 

General Deepavali SOPs
