No house to house carolling and public Christmas gatherings is allowed as well.

Aside from that, unvaccinated individuals remain side-lined under the SOPs and are not allowed to attend Christmas service with the services limited to certain hours on both 24th and 25th December 2021.

Christmas service at churches are also limited to 50 percent capacity of the venue but there is no limit to the number of services being done.

The full list of SOPs can be read and obtained from SDMC’s website.

Merry Christmas everyone, stay safe

It is indeed tough times for Christmas as the SOPs will definitely make the celebration rather different again this year.

Nonetheless, it’s key to keep everyone healthy and so the SOPs are needed.
