Earlier in October, the NCOC further relaxed Covid-19 related restrictions by allowing the reopening of cinemas, and shrines for fully vaccinated citizens.
The decision was announced after the coronavirus situation continued to improve in the country.
“Cinemas and shrines across the country are allowed to reopen for fully vaccinated people adding that mandatory one-day weekly closure of businesses has also been abolished,” said the NCOC stated in a statement.
The federal government’s central body dealing with the pandemic also allowed increasing the number of guests attending indoor wedding ceremonies from 200 to 300 and from 300 to 500 for outdoor weddings.
