Churches, Mosques To Reopen As FG Lifts Ban On Religious Gatherings

Published by on June 2nd, 2020.

The Federal Government has lifted its restrictions on worship places in the country. Boss Mustapha, Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 made this disclosure on Monday in a Press briefing in Abuja.

The new directive is coming months after the ban on churches and mosques were enabled.

Some states have since opened their religious centres. The federal government however said the reopening of worship centres is still largely based on following the protocols of the federal government and the NCDC.

“After considering all factors mentioned above, the PTF submitted its recommendations and the PRESIDENT has approved the following for implementation over the next four weeks spanning 2nd – 29th June, 2020, subject to review-:

i. Cautious advance into the Second Phase of the national response to COVID-19;

ii. Application of science and data to guide the targeting of areas of on-going high transmission of COVID-19 in the country;

iii. Mobilisation of all resources at State and Local Government levels to create public awareness on COVID 19 and improve compliance with non-pharmaceutical interventions within communities;

iv. Sustenance of key non-pharmaceutical interventions that would apply nationwide and include:

-Ban of gatherings of more than 20 people outside of a workplace;

–Relaxation of restriction on places of Worship based on guidelines issued by the PTF and Protocols agreed by State Governments
