Mosques, churches and other religious organizations will reopen in Uzbekistan since June 5, reports the nation-wide commission for coronavirus containment, EDNews.net reports citing AKIpress.

The work of religious organizations will be allowed in “yellow” and “green” areas of the country with improved epidemiological situation.

The following new sanitary regulations are obligatory for reopened religious organizations:

- Regular disinfection.

- Entrances and exits should be equipped with pyrometers and disinfecting instruments.

- Workers have to use individual protection gear (masks and gloves). They also should keep social distance and mark safe distance for worshippers (the space between praying people should be at least 1.5 meters).

- People with temperature above 37, with signs of infection or without protection gear are not allowed to enter.

The collective religious rituals such as Friday prayers are not allowed yet.

On May 8, the division into quarantine areas was introduced in Uzbekistan depending on COVID-19 situation. The areas are divided into “red” (with confirmed active cases), “yellow” (with no new confirmed cases but patients remaining in hospitals) and “green” (free of infection) zones.
