While regular Saturday and Sunday service remains suspended the government on Wednesday announced that churches can begin performing other sacraments.

Cabinet agreed that churches are free to conduct rituals, including baptisms, confirmations, weddings, funerals with the social distancing rules enforced, and no more than 25 persons in the sanctuary all wearing masks.

The churches are to submit their protocols for consideration, which protocols will govern the holding of their regular Saturday and Sunday services.

Churches have been banned from performing these rituals for over a month under state of emergency regulations which have since been relaxed.

A July timeline has been put in place for the resumption of regular worship.
