Among the SOPs included are limits placed on the number of people allowed to celebrate in one house/landed property at a time. “For celebrations taking place on landed property, CMCO and RMCO areas are allowed to have their immediate family and not more than 20 people at the premises at one time during Deepavali festivities,” said the minister.

As for those residing in apartments and condominiums, only 10 people are allowed to celebrate in the same space at a time, but this also depends on the capacity of the household. Ismail Sabri said that for living spaces that are larger than 1,500 square feet, more people can attend if everybody practices safe physical distancing. However, for EMCO areas, visitations are strictly prohibited.
