DIG Rohana added a group of 15 persons, including close relatives, the registrar, and witnesses required for registration of the marriage will be permitted to attend. He also said as informed previously, hosting wedding receptions has been banned. This decision is based on new regulations of the Director General of Health Services. Further, funerals must be held within 24 hours of a death and only 15 persons will be allowed to attend. This does not apply to COVID-19 deaths.
