In addition to the basic norms of wearing masks and maintaining at least 6 feet physical distancing, the SOPs necessitate sanitisation of rides and staggered timings of operation. Maximum 50 per cent seating capacity in theatres and food courts have been allowed.

The guidelines also stress on ensuring natural ventilation while clearly instructing not to permit usage of swimming pools.

The Entertainment park owners and managers have been instructed to effectively work out mechanisms to not allow excessive crowding even on peak days and holidays.

Among other specific guidelines issued for the Entertainment Parks, the ministry said that adequate and regular water filtration and chlorination in water based theme parks and rides should be ensured.
