Annual crossover services held by religious organizations to herald the New Year could have a different feel about them this year, due to the spread of different strains of COVID-19.

Nigeria’s federal government has declared that indoor religious gatherings should be limited to 50 percent capacity, with full adherence to public health measures.

“The Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 recognizes the importance of the Christmas and New Year celebrations for most Nigerians.

“As we prepare to celebrate with our families and loved ones, it is important that we do so safely by taking the necessary precautionary measures to stop the further spread of COVID-19 in our country,” says Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

Mustapha adds that “Indoor religious congregation should be limited to 50% capacity with full compliance to public health social measures; face masks and hand sanitizers should be used at all times regardless of vaccination status while in public spaces.

“Families are advised to limit the number of visitors to their homes and put in place precautionary safety measures. Any gathering in the excess of 50 people should be done in open spaces with physical distancing.”

Nigerians have also been advised to take their vaccine or booster shots, as the Omicron variant of COVID-19 makes its way around the population.
