The Ministry of Home Affairs will allow 100% setting capacity in the cinema hall from February 1st. The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting issued new guidelines for cinema halls and theaters, as previously in October 2020 they decided to reopen the theaters with 50% of occupancy but now from February onwards they have allowed them with 100% occupancy.
Have a look at some general guidelines:
1: Face Masks are mandatory at cinema halls
2: -Theatergoers are expected to self-monitor their health and report any illness at the earliest
3: Aarogya Setu app is also necessary to keep track of those having a risk of infection.
4: Availability of hand sanitizers at the entry as well as for the exit area.
5: Respiratory etiquettes to be strictly followed. This involves strict practice of covering one’s mouth and nose while coughing/sneezing with a tissue/handkerchief/flexed elbow and disposing off used tissues properly.
6. Spitting shall be strictly prohibited.
Shreedhar Pillai shared the tweet where he wrote: Welcome relief for Theatres -100% seating allowed.
Have look at the tweet:
The new SOPs will come with lots of positivity for the film industry as well as for the theater’s owners as they are facing many problems since the theatres are shut down, but they will have to follow measures to control the spread of infection through regular temperature checks, separated seats, show timings, social distancing, and digital payments, among other things.
