Kuala Lumpur: Hari Raya Aidilfitri visits will be allowed only on the first day of the celebration in areas under the Movement Control Order (MCO), said Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said the number of visitors would be capped at 15 at any one time, based on the size of the house and with physical distancing. Hari Raya is expected to fall on May 13.

For areas under the Conditional MCO (CMCO) and Recovery MCO (RMCO), visits would be allowed on the first three days of Aidilfitri, he said.

“For CMCO areas, the number of guests is limited to 20 at any one time, based on the size of the house and with physical distancing, while for RMCO areas, not more than 25 guests are allowed at any one time,” he told a press conference here today.

However, households in Enhanced MCO (EMCO) areas are not allowed to receive any visitors, he added.

To contain the spread of COVID-19, he said, households accepting visitors are encouraged to provide temperature scanners, the MySejahtera QR code or provide a log book to record the names and telephone numbers of visitors.

He also said the government allowed "takbir raya" at mosques and suraus in MCO, CMCO and RMCO areas according to the conditions set by state religious authorities but such activities are not allowed in EMCO areas.

Ismail Sabri said Hari Raya prayers are allowed to be held at mosques and suraus in MCO, CMCO and RMCO areas, with the attendance size and participation of men, women and children according to the requirements set by the state religious authorities, but the prayers would not be allowed in EMCO areas.

Apart from this, feasts after Aidilfitri prayers at mosques and suraus, open houses, and visiting of graves would not be allowed in MCO and EMCO areas, he added.

“For CMCO and RMCO areas, feasts after Hari Raya prayers at mosques and suraus are allowed, subject to conditions set by state religious authorities,” he said, adding that mosque and surau committees are encouraged to provide packed food for congregants to take home.
