Rwanda has allowed churches to reopen but offerings will not be given in cash, among other strict conditions meant to limit the spread of coronavirus.
Members will register at the entrance and maintain 1.5m (4.9ft) distance. They must wear masks and children under the age of 12 will not be allowed in.
Churches and schools were shut across the country on 14 March, hours after the first case of Covid-19 was reported in the country.
Bishop Philippe Rukamba of the Council of Catholic Bishops in Rwanda recently said as they were allowed to reopen, the “Catholic tradition order of Mass would remain the same, but the how would change”.
Rwandans online have praised the decision while others have complained that bars – which remain closed – should also be allowed to open.
Schools will remain closed until September.
