The Health Ministry said it was not appropriate to engage in New Year games like pillow fights, tug of war as they carry the risk of spreading the COIVD-19 virus, Dr. Susie Perera, Deputy Director General, Public Health Services II, Ministry of Health said yesterday.

She also recommended not to hold musical shows as it would also carry the risk of spreading the virus.

“The health authorities encourage people to engage in customs and traditions at home rather than doing them collectively,” she said.

“When organizing Avurudu festivals, it is up to the organizers to make sure that the events are held under strict adherence to health guidelines. If any game or event carry any sort of risk, we urge organizers not to carry on with such events,” she added. (Sheain Fernandopulle)
