Lagos State government says religious gatherings would be allowed to reopen on June 21, 2020.

According to the Governor:

  • Mosques are to reopen from June 19 while churches are to begin services from June 21.

  • Members below age 15, and above 65 years are not allowed.

  • All religious centres must be 40% capacity – no hugging, no serving of food.

  • Houses of worship must also maintain a “no face mask, no entry” policy throughout the duration of their activities. Periodic cleaning and disinfection of facilities.
