Sarawakians, particularly those living in longhouses, are reminded that they are restricted from celebrating tonight and on New Year’s Day.

Police have issued warnings to longhouse leaders prohibiting parties, eating, and drinking on New Year’s Eve.

Police want to remind longhouse folk that the ban is not only applicable in cities and towns, but also to rural settlements.

There must be no gatherings of any kind, as a precaution against the spread of Covid-19,” he said in a statement.

Sarawak issued a blanket ban on public New Year’s Eve festivities statewide on Tuesday.

Additionally, operators of entertainment establishments are barred from organising countdown activities.

Entertainment and business outlets cannot operate beyond midnight and no New Year’s Eve parties are allowed. Any premises found violating this ban will be penalised,” said SDMC.
