Kuttippuram: Police department’s permission is now required to conduct wedding and funeral ceremonies. This decision was taken after the police department was handed over the COVID prevention responsibilities in the state. Instructions have been handed over to station officers in this regard.
Police have also been instructed that the rate of disease transmission should be reduced within two weeks. In case of a death, it should be reported at the nearest police station. Permission should be sought in advance to conduct ceremonies including marriages.
Families will have to sign a consent form stating that the ceremonies will only be conducted as per COVID protocols. The police should be informed of conducting any ceremony that includes visitors from outside the family.
