RIYADH: The Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah, and Guidance reopened 19 mosques that were temporarily shut for cleaning after COVID-19 cases were confirmed among worshippers, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
Coronavirus infections have led to 1,280 mosques in the Kingdom being forced to close in the past 105 days. They were reopened after sanitization measures were completed.
The ministry said on Saturday that six were reopened in Riyadh, three each in Abha and Jazan, two each in Asir and Madinah, and one each in Najran, Tabuk and the Northern Borders.
It added that the cleaning measures were carried out for the safety of worshippers.
The ministry urged people and mosque employees to follow precautionary measures, namely wearing face masks, using their own prayer mats and maintaining social distance.
