The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem reopens for the faithful.
The three communities of Jerusalem – the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem, the Custody of the Holy Land and the Armenian Patriarchate – have announced that the Church of the Holy Sepulchre would receive believers from tomorrow, on Sunday the 24th of May, “for visits and prayer”.
Up to 50 people will be allowed inside the church and they will have to wear a protective mask. They will also have to keep a distance of at least two metres from each other and not touch or venerate icons and sacred objects.
Finally, according to the announcement of the three communities, people who enter the church must not have shown any kind of symptoms of infection or have a fever. However, the way in which this will be controlled has not yet been clarified.
