Raya or not Raya, you have to follow the health protocols

I would like to commend the authorities for continuing to emphasize the importance of respecting health protocols, especially in the midst of Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations, when visiting relatives is part of our culture.

However, as celebrants make sure to screen for infection before home visits over the festive period, more people have opted to spend the break in shopping malls where measures are more lax.

I’m rather disappointed that, while valid, the advisory preceding the Raya essentially forced the public to choose sides: celebrate with family under careful scrutiny or shop the holidays with relative freedom.

My call is for the public to continue to follow standard operating procedures; they are in place for a reason – to protect us from harm. Just because you’ve chosen not to be part of Raya’s celebration doesn’t mean you have to give up social responsibility in the time of COVID-19.
