…Nigerian Churches reopen with COVID-19 guidelines
Christians gathered on Sunday for worship and prayer at different churches in Abuja, as places of worship reopened following the gradual easing of restrictions enforced to curtail the spread of the coronavirus disease in the Federal Capital Territory.
The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 had recently released the guidelines for the reopening of worship centers in the country.
According to the PTF, people should observe the COVID-19 guidelines which include the wearing of face maks, as well as handwashing at the entrances of these worship centers.
It also urged worshippers to use hand sanitizers with not less than sixty percent alcohol content and compulsory temperature checks.
This is as the Task Force reiterated that facilities must be arranged in a way that encourages the observation of physical distancing, calling on congregants to shun hugging, kissing, and shaking.
Furthermore, the PTF said church/mosque volunteers (ushers, choir, security, etc) that have underlying illnesses should not be allowed to serve just as it added that the time for worship services should not be more than one hour.
