The Lebanese authorities have decided to impose a total containment of 3 days on the occasion of the Orthodox Easter holidays, identical to those that had been imposed during the Catholic Easter holidays.
The latter should begin Friday evening and end next Monday.
As a reminder, the curfew from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. imposed on the occasion of Ramandan is also still in place.
Thus the churches will remain open at 30% of their capacity during the Easter holidays. However, it will be necessary to obtain an exit authorization via the site. http://covid.pcm.gov.lb
The churches will be able to open their doors to celebrate the Mass of Good Friday as well as the Easter Mass “in a short way”.
However, it will be a question of respecting the social distancing measures, with the wearing of a mask but also to limit to 30% in relation to the reception capacity, the number of people attending.
These containment measures aim to avoid family gatherings and public gatherings, the main current vectors of the COVID19 coronavirus in Lebanon.
