Also, outside the temples, this ratio is set at one person per 10m2, and always in compliance with the rules of hygiene.

For the faithful it is obligatory to use a double mask both indoors and outdoors, while for the priests, nuns, cantors and other staff, who will be inside the church, it is obligatory to perform a covid test.
