*Mosques reopens from August 7 (Friday)
*Churches reopens from August 9 (Sunday)
*50% of Maximum Capacity will be allowed
The Lagos State Government has ordered the reopening of Religious Centres starting from August 7, 2020. The Executive Governor, Babajide Sanwo Olu made this known during a press briefing few hours ago today that Places of worship in Lagos will now be opened from Friday, the 7th of August for our Muslim worshippers, and on Sunday, the 9th of August for our Christian worshippers.
He however insisted that only 50 per cent of their maximum capacities will be allowed either at the church or at the mosque and that Churches who have a Saturday worship day will also be allowed to hold worship.
According to the Executive Governor, We will monitor this for the next couple of weeks and see how compliance gets as we move along. They are encouraged to have multiple services on those days but they should restrict it to those designated days of worship.
“In addition, the following conditions must also be fully met by all our religious centres; regular gatherings are permitted to hold but vigils and other services should still be on hold for now.
We recommend and seriously appeal to our senior citizens – if you are aged 65 and above, you are still strongly advised not to attend these places of worship. Please stay back at home.”
“We should still ensure that no face masks policy are maintained throughout the duration of the services. They should ensure that regular cleaning and disinfection of the facilities are carried out to maintain a clean and hygiene environment before, during and after the services”.
“It is mandatory to provide handwashing facilities and hand sanitisers at the various worship places. Handshakes, hugs, high-fives are not permitted during gatherings and should be emphasised and displayed at the various places of worship,” he added.
