Governor Ben Ayade has lifted the suspension on public worship in Cross River State with effect from Sunday, 24th May, 2020.
Consequently, starting from Sunday, May 24, church services are permitted but limited to the sitting capacity of the Church. Same applies to the Mosques.
A statement issued today in Calabar by Mr. Christian Ita, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity said the use of nose mask is compulsory for all worshipers, while churches and Mosques should provide buckets for hand washing or sanitizers.
It advises churches and mosques to strictly adhere to the guidelines as enforcement team will still go around to check compliance.
