Churches Permitted To Hold Services, Under Certain Conditions


The Zimbabwean government has allowed churches to continue holding their services under the more restrictive lockdown regulations.

Permanent secretary in the Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Ndavaningi Nick Mangwana said worshippers can hold service but should observe several health guidelines. He said:

For the avoidance of doubt, churches can hold services under the following conditions;

They should disinfect the premises before and after each service
They should have facilities to wash hands or sanitise hands

Temperature checks
Everyone is masked
Physically distanced sitting

According to The Herald, on Saturday last week police dispersed more than 5 000 members of the Johane Marange Apostolic Church who had gathered on the outskirts of Masvingo for their annual Passover ceremony.

The congregates were instructed to return to their homes after violating COVID-19 social distancing rules which do not allow a group exceeding 50 people to congregate.
