As part of continuous efforts to curb the spread of the disease, the Governor noted that mosques and churches will be allowed to open only at 50 percent of their capacity while attendees over the age of 65 are strongly discouraged from attending worship services.

The governor also said that churches whose main worship days fall on Saturdays, are permitted to hold their services on Saturdays, subject to the same guidelines as churches holding services on Sundays. He however emphasized that places of worship are only permitted to have their regular once-a-week services on the designated days.
