Religious bodies have been given the opportunity to start holding services beginning June 5.

However, at a press briefing today, the Minister of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs Kofi Dzamesi outlined detailed requirements religious bodies must comply with.

These directives are aimed at preventing churches and mosques from becoming coronavirus infection points.

Among the directives include a ban on waving on handkerchiefs, prepackaged Lord’s supper and muslims being required to perform ablution at home before going to the mosque.

However, beyond the directives, the government also sent a word of advice to the elderly and people living with underlying health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma, to stay away from the church and the mosque.

Based on statistics from the Ghana Health Service the elderly and people with underlying health conditions are most likely to lose their lives when infected.
