Ekiti State Government has shifted the date for reopening of worship centres in the state to Friday August 14.
This is contained in a letter on Thursday, signed by the Commissioner for Health and Human Services, Dr Mojisola Yaya-Kolade to the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN, Ekiti State chapter.
DrYaya-Kolade in the letter stated that the shifting in date of the worship centres re-opening which was initially fixed for July 17 to August 14, became imperative because most of the religious centres have not fully complied with the guidelines laid down for kick starting activities.
Some of the guidelines stipulated include, fumigation and certification of the worship centres, provision of infrared thermometers at the entrances and water for regular hand washing , and provision of alcohol based hand- sanitises.
The statement reiterated that only one- service per week of two hour duration without participation of children between the ages of one to twelve, is allowed while adults above 65 years as well people with other critical health issues are restricted from religious.
