Cabinet okays limits on large gatherings, including weddings

The cabinet approves the “Revelry Pass,” which will create limitations for weddings, parties and other large indoor celebratory events, the Prime Minister’s Office says.

The new rules go into effect on Wednesday. The regulations will limit gatherings of over 100 people to those who are vaccinated, recovered or who present a negative COVID test. While the gatherings won’t be limited in size, masks will be mandatory, except when eating or drinking.

The pass will not apply to sit-down culture events such as theater, movies and concerts. It will only apply to events “held standing and with movement — including mingling between participants,” a PMO statement has said, highlighting “weddings and celebrations, standing performances, parties and conferences” as examples.
