Mosques in Portugal may reopen from Saturday

The mosques have been closed since March 19, when the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, decreed a state of emergency, because of the covid-19 pandemic.

With the reopening on the horizon, the Islamic Community of Lisbon (CIL) released a guide of recommendations to be taken when returning prayers in mosques.

The faithful must also wear their mask, but mosques will be able to provide security material to those who do not have it.

Currently, the Lisbon Mosque has a group of asylum seekers in Portugal infected with covid-19.

The group of about 14 people is part of the 169 infected with covid-19 that were removed from a hostel in Lisbon, in April, and transported to the Air Base of Ota, in the municipality of Alenquer, to quarantine, having remained in that site for a month.

This new phase of combating covid-19 provides for mandatory confinement for sick people and under active surveillance, the general duty of home collection and the mandatory use of masks or visors in public transport, public attendance services, schools and commercial establishments.

The Government approved new measures that came into force on May 18, among which the resumption of visits to users of nursing homes, the reopening of daycare centers, face-to-face classes for the 11th and 12th year and the reopening of some street shops, cafes, restaurants, museums, monuments and palaces.

The return of the community religious ceremonies is scheduled for May 30 and the opening of the bathing season for June 6.
