A deacon with the Berean Assembly of the Assemblies of God church in Accra has urged Christians to strictly adhere to the Covid-19 safety protocols while attending service.

According to Dr Emmanuel Obeng Appau, easing of restrictions on religious activities, including church service by the President does not mean the Covid-19 pandemic is over.

“Put your face masks on because vehicles are now taking their full capacities. In case, one sneeze on you, you will not be infected,” he said.

His comments come during the church’s weekly educational drive on the Covid- 19 pandemic where he urged strict wearing of face masks, washing of hands, and adherence to other measures to protect oneself from contracting the virus.

Though Deacon Appau lauded the president for easing the restrictions.

He insisted that “easing the restrictions did not mean easing the safety protocols,” therefore, everyone must observe the measures as it is the only way to save people from contracting the virus.
