"In view of the increasing number of cases of Covid-19 this past week, we have decided the best thing for our congregation is to bring service online," said the CHC letter seen by The Straits Times, and referring to the disease caused by the coronavirus.

Starting Wednesday, the Grace Assembly of God church stopped all services and activities for two weeks, after it was reported that two of its employees had contracted the coronavirus. Another five cases were linked to the church on Thursday, making it seven cases there in total.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery in Sin Ming said that it has suspended all events, classes and group chanting for the rest of the month.Churches here will also be introducing control measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus, like carrying out temperature screening, ensuring their premises are ventilated and adequately equipped with handwashing facilities, as well as increasing the frequency of their cleaning.

Besides increasing the frequency of cleaning common areas and daily temperature checks for staff and visitors, these temples also provide face masks and sanitisers, which are readily available to anyone who may need them, added the spokesman.Earlier this month, the mufti Ustaz Mohamed Fatris Bakaram, 49, urged Muslims here to do their best to continue life as normal, while remaining socially responsible about their health and hygiene.
