Any church or mosque that flout 100 worshippers order will be closed down – Oppong Nkrumah

President Akufo-Addo has eased the restrictions on public and social gatherings by announcing the commencement of religious activities from June 5.

In his 10th address to the nation on measures being taken against the spread of COVID-19, the President said effective June 5, 2020 churches and mosques can start meeting with a maximum congregation of 100.

“An abridged format for religious services can commence. Twenty-five per cent attendance, with a maximum number of 100 congregants, can worship at a time in church or at the mosque, with a mandatory one metre rule of social distancing between congregants…, ” he said.

Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in an interview on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’ explained that no matter how big the church or mosque auditorium, the number should not exceed 100.

He said there will be officials who will be going round to ensure the adherence to the President’s directive and any church or mosque that flouts the measures will be closed down.

“No matter how big your church is, you cannot exceed the 100 mark, but you are allowed to have multiple services,” he said.

Nose Mask

“In addition to mandatory wearing of masks, a register of names and contact details of all worshippers must be provided; maximum duration of one hour per service,” the President said in his address.

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah speaking to this asked leaders to ensure that their members don’t wear mask exceeding 1hour.

“No one is to wear the mask more than an hour continuous,” he urged.
