In France, a decree published on Saturday allows the resumption of religious ceremonies that were prevented due to the outbreak of the new Corona virus starting from the same day, while observing the rules of disease prevention such as cleansing hands and wearing a protective mask.
This measure comes into effect after the decision of the Council of State, the highest administrative body in France, which on May 18 ordered the government to lift the “general and absolute” ban on gatherings in places of worship as part of limiting the spread of the new Corona virus. The State Council believed that this prohibition “constituted a serious and illegal violation” of freedom of worship.
