Only 20 people at a time will be allowed in CP’s Hanuman Mandir
NEW DELHI: While it is still being debated whether opening of religious places from June 8 would be a good or a bad move, temples, gurdwaras, churches and mosques are gearing up to ensure that their premises do not turn into Covid-19 hubs.
The committees of the holy places said now the visits won’t be the same as earlier, and thalis, flowers, ornaments and other offerings would no longer be in the picture. They have started drawing up safety plans without waiting for the Delhi government’s standard operating procedures.
The managements have also decided the best option would be to make visits “contactless”. In place of prasad, people would be urged to carry sanitisers to use while entering and exiting the premises. Kalkaji temple has marked social distancing spots and attached sanitiser bottles on alternate pillars.
