The Inter-Religious Council of Uganda has said they have developed Standard Operating Procedures for their members to enable them prevent coronavirus spread when they finally reopen places of worship.

The draft guidelines, according to Mr Joshua Kitakule, the council`s secretary general, were submitted to the Ministry of Health and the national taskforce on Covid-19 for guidance and seek to divide their congregation to limit numbers of those, who come for prayers at any given time. In their proposals, the members will be expected to pray in phases to observe the two-metre social distance among the congregation, ensure among other guidelines hand washing, sanitising at every entrance, register all attendants and take temperature before accessing the premises of worship.
