Kuwait reimposes social distancing measures in mosques, gatherings

Kuwait has reimposed COVID-19 measures in mosques and marriage ceremonies amid a spike in infections and the emergence of the new Omicron variant.

Worshippers are required to maintain social distancing, wear facemasks, bring their own prayer mats and avoid direct contact, KUNA reported.

Mosque officials must also keep doors and windows open during sermons and prayer times. There must be a time-cap of 15 minutes for Friday afternoon sermons.

Effective Jan. 9, only six individuals are allowed to attend marriage contract-writing ceremonies.

The government has banned all kinds of public gatherings in closed places from Jan. 9 until Feb. 28.
