According to a notification issued by the Punjab Primary and Secondary Healthcare Department, all types of large scale gatherings have been banned.

“Outdoor marriages and events will be allowed with an upper limit of 300 people.” It stated that all wedding hall owners and residents are obliged to follow SOPs given by the government.

Wearing facemasks has been made mandatory. The order was approved by Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar. The ban will come into effect from November 20 and will last till January 31, 2021.

On November 6, the NCOC placed a ban on gatherings at wedding halls. However, it allowed people to hold weddings in open spaces with strict compliance with the SOPs.

On Wednesday, the Islamabad High Court had disposed of a petition challenging the ban on indoor gatherings at wedding halls imposed by the National Command and Control Centre (NCOC) in wake of the Covid-19 second wave.
