Two more mosques were closed yesterday for violating COVID-19 protocols, the Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments said. The latest move comes hot on the heels of the ministry closing three other mosques in the Southern Governorate for failing to comply with health regulations.

The ministry also blames the latest closures on the laxity of those in charge of denying entry to non-vaccinated and infected worshippers. Out of the two mosques closed yesterday, one is the southern governorate and another in the northern governorate.

The mosques, the ministry said, will remain closed for a week to carry out contact tracing, sterilisation and ensure the correct implementation of COVID-19 protocols.

The ministry also called upon worshipers to show responsibility and full compliance with health protocols to protect fellow citizens.
