An Hour Ago
PLACES of worship will be allowed to reopen on Thursday, not Friday as initially announced by the Prime Minister.
At Saturday’s media briefing at the Diplomatic Centre in St Ann’s, Dr Rowley had said the decision “should bring a lot of relief” to many people. He said services should be one hour, maximum.
But in a press release on Sunday morning, Rowley said the date was changed.
He said, “This will allow for nationwide church celebrations of Corpus Christi which comes on the eve of the originally scheduled reopening date.
“Believers and devotees are reminded that as we return to our places of worship later this week we must strictly observe the guidelines of sanitising, distancing and wearing of a mask by all persons attending places of worship.”
