Following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease, Worship centres across the state have remained closed since March despite reversals by other states to reopen worship venues.

This has especially been in view of the serious population density in Lagos which has resultantly seen it record the highest number of COVID-19 cases.

The Lagos state governor had earlier released guidelines for reopening of worship centres a few weeks ago, but reverted the decision having weighed the consequences more critically.

It appears the state government will now sanction reopening of worship venues, which is expected to follow prescribed guidelines.
