KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia on Sunday (Feb 7) eased COVID-19 restrictions for Chinese New Year reunion dinner, just days after announcing the initial curbs.
Up to 15 family members from different households will now be allowed to dine together for their reunion dinner, provided they live within 10km of each other, said the National Unity Ministry.
These family members are also not permitted to travel across state or district boundaries.
The ministry added that religious activities within houses of worship on Feb 11, Feb 12 and Feb 19 will now be permitted, subject to a 30-person limit. All individuals must also wear face masks and observe safe distancing.
Prayers must be kept to 30 minutes, followed by 30 minutes of cleaning and sanitation before the next prayer session is conducted.
