He said the SOPs remained the same, adding that worshippers must comply with the SOPs set to curb the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.
“Congregants must abide by the SOPs, especially wearing face masks, bringing their own prayer mats and practising physical distancing,” he said in a statement today.
