The Regent, after chairing a coordination meeting of the COVID-19 Task Force to adjust the implementation of the restriction with the regent's instruction, said that congregational prayers and marriage are allowed.
"Marriage should be carried out at KUA (the Office of Religious Affairs), but the party is not allowed to avoid crowds, learning will be held online, parks and tourist attractions are closed beginning today," he said in his statement Wednesday (July 28, 2021).
Congregational prayers are allowed, but with strict health protocols. There must be volunteers with a number that balances with the capacity of the place of worship. It is because of HSS in the orange zone. While the duration of the sermon remains in accordance with the MUI recommendation.
"While we are still allowed to hold congregational worship keep following the health protocols to avoid crowds. Provide post at the markets, merchant, and buyers who don't wear masks turn back," he said.
