The total duration of the prayer, including the sermon, is limited to 15 minutes, the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) said.
Mosques and musallahs will open 15 minutes before the prayer and close immediately after. The traditional practice of handshakes and hugs after the prayer is forbidden. Worshippers are not allowed to gather at the places of worship before or after the prayer.
