Cambodia Lifts the Ban on Muslims Gathering at their Mosques Imposed due to COVID-19

As the Ministry of Health reminds Muslims and Buddhists to follow health directives to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The Cambodian government has announced that the ban on Muslims congregating at their mosques had been lifted and that, as of Sept. 11, they can assemble again for religious practices.

According to a press release of the Ministry of Health on Sept 5, people will have to do so while adhering to strict measures to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

This will include wearing masks, doing temperature scans, keeping a distance of at least 1.5 meters from one another, the ministry said. Moreover, people must not shake hands, using salutation and saying Islamic greetings instead; worship only 20 to 30 minutes and go home immediately afterwards to prevent gatherings. And worshippers will need to have a rug for personal use that they will take home.
