PUTRAJAYA: Similar to the Aidilfitri festival, visiting activities in conjunction with Gawai Day are only allowed on the first day with a maximum of 20 individuals at any one time.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob once again reminded the public to abide by the standard operating procedure (SOP) throughout the celebration.

“Just like the celebration of Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Kaamatan Festival, the Gawai Day celebration is certainly different from the previous years.

“We wish to remind that the celebration is only allowed for the first day with a capacity of 20 family members,” he said at a press conference here on Sunday.

Commenting further on this, Ismail Sabri said the capacity of the visit was limited to family members and closest neighbours only.

“We recommend that it be limited to those in the same home,” he said.

He said the COVID-19 outbreak has changed the way we prepare and usher in these festivals.

“We all need to adapt to the new normal and also need to ensure that self-discipline is practised to stem this pandemic,” he said.
