PHI,MOH approval required prior to organizing events

The public should inform the Public Health Inspector (PHI) or Medical Officer of Health (MOH) of the area and obtain guidelines prior to organizing any type of event at home, even a small gathering with 10 or 15 persons, the Public Health Inspectors' Union President Upul Rohana said.

According to Rohana, the public need to inform the PHI or MOH of the relevant area prior to organizing even small events such as an alms giving. Once informed, the MOH and PHI will inspect the location and issue guidelines accordingly.

"If people do not inform the relevant authorities of such events as instructed, the neighbours or anyone in the surrounding areas can notify the health authorities or the Police. Therefore, it is advisable to inform the health authorities of the relevant area before organizing such events," he said.

All the guidelines for organizing events are now available on the Health Ministry website
