The governor said mosques can hold their prayers five times daily while churches can also commence weekly services.

Worship centres in the state had been shut since March as part of measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, the governor has also okayed the reopening of cinemas, spas and other recreational centres in the state.

Like most public places, cinemas and other recreational outlets were shut in March to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

But while some public places like markets, banks, airports, amongst others have been allowed to reopen, cinemas, beaches and other places of relaxation remain closed.

Giving an update on the development, Sanwo-Olu’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, said cinemas and other recreational outlets must obtain the necessary clearance from the state safety commission before reopening.

He also said cinemas are to observe COVID-19 protocol including social distancing and as such should keep to 33 per cent occupancy of their maximum capacities.

“Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, announces resumption of cinemas, spas and gyms in the state. Cinemas must, however, keep strictly to 33% of their capacities. They must get the necessary certification from the Lagos State Safety Commission,” the governor’s aide tweeted.
