Sarawak only allows venues to fill up 50% of their capacity for social and official events.

Previously, the state capped the capacity at 250 people.

According to reports, Sarawak State Disaster Management Committee Chairman Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said that if the venue can accommodate up to 1,000 people, the maximum would be 500.

The directive came into force today (24 August) and must comply with the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that have been set such as maintaining physical distancing.
