“Let us especially assist the elderly to get vaccinated, since many times they are further away from vaccination points and may not even be aware of it. They are our loved ones and we do not wish to lose their lives by chance, through Covid-19 illness,” a statement signed by Archbishop Anthony Muheria, Chairman for the Interfaith Council the council.

While applauding Kenyans for greater uptake of the vaccines in the last month and compliance and discipline in places in places of worship, the council invites individual support towards the vaccination program and general adherence to Covid-19 protocols.

“We witnessed a tremendous surge in infections in July and September 2021, but more worrying was the really high numbers of Covid-19 related deaths. The prevalence remained at over 15% for a very long time. We are glad to note that the numbers seem to be coming down and the prevalence stands at around 9%,” he said.

Inter-faith Council to release guidelines on reopening of places of worship

Time limit for all worship services will continue to be 120 minutes corresponding with Phase 3 of the Interfaith guidelines with the Interfaith council stressing on adherence to Covid-19 measures in places of worship.

“We plead with all Kenyans through the Religious leaders, to shorten the time between death and the Burial, so as to reduce the number of the preparation gatherings. Please also adhere to the Guidelines from the Interfaith Council in the Funerals, which include not to offer any meals at the funerals,” Archbishop Muheria adds.
