Capital springs to life with low-key CNY celebrations

Traditionally, the Chinese community in the Sultanate heralds the Lunar New Year with colourful celebrations at the Teng Yun Temple in the capital, a spectacle that ropes in thick crowds from all walks of life keen on catching the spectacular lion dance performance on the first morning of Chinese New Year.

This year, however, low-key celebrations were held, in adherence to measures laid out to prevent the COVID-19 spread.

The event abided by the Ministry of Health standard operating procedures (SOPs) of 75 per cent capacity.
