St. Andrew's Church in Abu Dhabi Temporary Closes To Contain The Spread Of Coronavirus
In an effort to contain the new coronavirus, St. Andrew's Church in Abu Dhabi will be closing down its compound to worshippers starting on Thursday.
"We took this decision as hundreds and hundreds of worshippers come to the church every week -- St. Andrew's Church is home to over 60 congregations. We need to do whatever it takes to support the Government in its efforts to contain the spread of the virus," Rev Canon Andy Thompson, Senior Chaplain of the church, told Gulf News.
The church's official Facebook page has recently posted a statement, saying that that decision has been made to temporarily close the church's compound.
"This is not a decision that's taken lightly," the statement added.
