Churches and mosques to re-open from June 5 – but with only 100 congregants at a time

Jun 01, 2020

Up to 100 worshipers can congregate in churches, mosques and other places of worship from June 5, President Akufo-Addo has announced as part of easing Covid-19 restrictions.

The threshold is, however, 25 percent attendance, which means the number could be smaller for congregations with smaller numbers.

The leaders of these bodies are, however, expected to ensure their members adhere to proper social distancing protocols during worship.

Veronica buckets are also to be provided for congregants to wash their hands and hand sanitisers provided.
He added masks are also to be worn by all worshipers.

Also, all services are to last for a maximum of one hour, Akufo-Addo said in his tenth address to the nation since the outbreak of the pandemic in Ghana.

“Religious institutions that are desirous of opening their premises to their members, such as churches, mosques and others, must disinfect, fumigate and put in place the requisite logistics needed to guarantee safe opening and operation.

“They must work with the designated, regulatory bodies and undertake test runs of the protocols I have outlined,”he said.
Making a passionate appeal, Akufo-Addo said worshipers should “dedicate their worship to prayers for the nation in these challenging times.”

 “The Minister for Religious Affairs, will, today, Monday, 1st June, outline, in detail, the specific guidelines for the safe reopening of our churches and mosques,” he added.
