Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said mosques would reopen across large parts of the country Monday, after they were closed in early March amid the Middle East’s deadliest novel coronavirus outbreak.

Rouhani said 132 counties, around one third of the country’s administrative divisions, would “reopen their mosques as of tomorrow.”

The targeted counties are “low-risk,” Rouhani said in a televised meeting of the country’s virus taskforce.

He said the committee was also mulling reopening schools by May 16 to allow for a month of classes before the summer break.
