The Investiture of Penang state awards, medals and honours for 2020, which was scheduled on Feb 6 and 7, will be postponed until further notice.
Penang state assembly speaker Datuk Law Choo Kiang in a statement today said the ceremony was postponed due to the COVID-19 situation as well as the implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO) in the state, as announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
This is the fourth time the ceremony has been postponed following COVID-19 outbreak. Initially the ceremony scheduled for Nov 21 last year was postponed to Jan 16 and later rescheduled to Feb 6.
