Church may re-open at 50 percent of building capacity for one hour of service

By Aaron Humes: Almost as soon as Minister of Home Affairs, Kareem Musa, announced that as part of a loosening of COVID-19 Quarantine Regulations, churches can re-open at a capacity of “50% at any given time,” with services restricted to one hour from start to finish, we had questions from readers seeking clarification.

Churches typically hold morning and evening service on Sunday and activities during the week, and these are restricted to one hour each, no exceptions.

Musa told us that it is “50 percent of the building capacity; because if we get 50 percent of the membership, we might have 3,000 people in one church.” The one hour allotted for service counts off from the start of the service, i.e. from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. for example. “Kruffy Standard Time,” i.e. starting the service later than its usual time, is not permitted.

As for other church services, weddings and funerals are still restricted to ten persons each in attendance including celebrants because of restriction of close contact between attendants at weddings and funerals.

As the regulations take effect on Monday, February 1, services may not be scheduled for this Sunday, January 31.
