The Kano State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has made the wearing of face masks compulsory before worship can hold in any church.
This was made known in a statement on Friday by Rev. Samuel Adeyemo, the chairman of the association.
The statement read: “Wearing of face mask is compulsory before anyone is allowed into the church for worship.
“Bucket/drum of water and soap for handwashing before entering into the church for worship must be made available.
“Availability of alcohol-based hand sanitizers for worshippers to use before, during and/or after worship.
“Beloved servants of God, we sincerely request that all our pastors and congregants observe these important regulations as both CAN’s monitoring and enforcement team shall be visiting every church alongside the state monitoring and enforcement team.
“We do believe we shall cooperate with the CAN leadership to sustain the honour God has given to his church in the land/state.”
Naija News reports that the Kano State Government had approved for churches to reopen from Sunday, May 24.
Services in Churches will commence from 6 am but must complete the service by 1 pm.
