•Churches, mosques to operate at 50 percent capacity
Lagos State government has approved the reopening of places of worship in the state from next Friday, August 7.
This Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu gave the directive in a statewide broadcast at the Lagos House, Marina, Lagos.
While Moslems can reopen Mosques from Friday, August 7, Christians can also do the same from Sunday, August 9.
Sanwo-Olu however said the religious houses would open only once a week for their regular services and will only allow 50 per cent of their capacity, though they can hold multiple services on such designated days. Other weekly services and vigils are still put on hold.
He also advised that those above 65 years of age should not attend services at the places of worship; they should instead stay back at home.
He said, “No facemask, no entry policy should be observed in our religious centres and all religious centres must have sanitizers and emergency numbers must be advertised at the entrance of their worship centres.”
