Chinese New Year celebrations including prayer ceremonies are only allowed to be held at home with family members, says Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said prayers at temples are not allowed, except for five of the temple’s committee members, with people encouraged to perform the ceremony at home.

“This SOP was complied with during Hari Raya Aidilfitri, as well as Deepavali. However, for Sarawak we leave it to the state government to decide because there is the movement control order (MCO), there is the conditional MCO (CMCO),” he told a press conference on the development of the MCO.

He said large dining events in conjunction with the festival are also limited to family members living in the same household, while house-to-house visits and interdistrict or interstate travel to visit family members and friends are not allowed.

Chinese New Year festival and cultural events such as lion dance, dragon dance, lantern parades and Chinese opera and stage performances are not allowed either.
