By Aaron Humes: This morning the Ministry of Health clarified two aspects of the new COVID-19 public health regulations, in effect starting today.

On the issue of church services, the Ministry has corrected itself to say, “There is no need for immunization to attend church.”

As we reported last night, regulation 14 requires that churches hold 75 percent of their building capacity for parishioners, and “persons in attendance shall wear a face mask or other face (nose and mouth) covering and adhere to social distancing protocols.”

The issue has been contentious for certain churches, especially those belonging to the Evangelical branch of Christianity which previously objected when an immunization mandate was laid down last year.

We are seeking clarification whether regulation 6 will be clarified with respect to the immunization requirement to attend weddings and funerals, which unless held at the General Registry are typically church services.
