Ahead of the planned reopening of worship centres, religious leaders must make available hand sanitisers, thermometer guns and maintain social distancing.

“Places of worship in Lagos will now be opened from Friday, August 7 for our Muslim worshippers and on Sunday, August 9 for our Christian worshippers.

“We will only be allowing 50 per cent of their capacity at either the church or the mosque. Churches that have Saturday worship day will also be allowed to start holding their Saturday worship.

“We must reiterate that places of worship are only permitted to have their regular once a week service on designated days,” Governor Sanwo-Olu said.
