Directions on the risk-adjusted strategy for tourism facilities, services and products have been amended.

The tourism department published the amended Directions in Government Gazette 43731.

A new paragraph 11.1 is inserted.

It stipulates that attendance at a venue for a wedding, exhibition or any other function is limited to 50 percent of the capacity of the venue with a maximum of 250 persons at an indoor venue and a maximum of 500 persons at an outdoor venue.

Persons participating via electronic platforms are not included in the limitations.

A new paragraph 13 on Certificate of Occupancy stipulates that the “owner or operator of a restaurant, a conferences, meetings, weddings, exhibitions or functions venue, a hotel, lodge, bed and breakfast, time share facility, resort, guest house or a casino must display a certificate of occupancy which sets out the maximum number of persons the facility may hold”.

The amended Directions came into effect on the date of publication.
