Muslim faithfuls in Ekiti State have been issued a list of COVID-19 guidelines to adhere to as mosques prepare to reopen.
The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) advised Muslims to ensure they have their private mat and ablution kettle when they are going to mosque.
Persons above the age of 62 are advised to stay at home and pray.
This is contained in a statement issued by Alhaji Kunle Sanni, President, NSCIA Ekiti chapter.
“The service is expected to start at 1:30 p.m and end at 2:30 p.m.
”Everybody participating in the prayer should wear a nose mask. The number of worshippers in the Mosque should be determined by the capacity of the space to contain worshippers standing six feet apart.
“It should be ensured that under no circumstances should the worshippers converge to have any meetings or social gatherings without maintaining social distancing.
“Mosque management should appoint officials to monitor compliance,” he said.
