“We have decided to allow cinemas and live events to resume operations starting 1st July but only in closed environments and halls,” announced the minister.

He also stressed that “SOPs need to be tightly implemented. The number of attendants cannot exceed 250 people for now. But this also depends on how big the event or cinema hall is.”

Ismail Sabri emphasised that there should be a one-meter social distance rule kept at all times and the limit on the number of people allowed to attend the cinema will be subjected to the size of the enclosed space.

“The SOPs when entering the premise will still apply,” added the minister.

Hence, customary procedures such as the taking of body temperature, wearing masks and washing/sanitising your hands frequently will still be required.
