The notice advised the restricting of gatherings to less than 500 people and discouraged children and persons above the age of 65 from attending any public functions and worship services.

“Wearing masks, maintaining social distancing and sanitising of hand is mandatory for any worship service, wedding, funeral, prayer meeting, etc.,” it said.
