The fourth wave of COVID-19 infections in the country forcing local churches to make some difficult decisions to keep its members safe.

Amid an alarming spike in Covid-19 cases, Christ Church Cathedral, one of the oldest churches in new providence, is making adjustments to help curb the spread of the highly transmissible Omicron variant.

 



Reverend Dean Harry Bain says he hopes to be back at full capacity by Easter.

Earlier this year, The Bahamas recorded over 800 cases in a single day. There are over 7,000 active cases.

Even before the fourth wave, which is sweeping across the country, Pastor Mario Moxey says the church took certain precautions to keep its members safe.

He added a reservation system, implemented by the church, has been quite effective.

Moxey, who also serves as chairman of the Bahamas Christian Council’s Covid Investigation Committee, says the BCC was heavily involved in constructing the Covid-19 guidelines for church services which the group submitted to the ministry of health for approval under the previous administration.

He said there should be a new set of guidelines for the church in the near future.

He said fellow church leaders are “very thankful” that services are being allowed to continue with a reduced capacity of 25% adding it is better than not having services at all.
