Religious gatherings such as holy mass are now allowed in Metro Manila under general community quarantine, but COVID-19 is keeping churchgoers apart to slow the spread of the virus.
Only a limited number of devotees was permitted to enter the Baclaran Church in Parañaque City in observance of the 10 percent seating capacity rule imposed earlier.
The church implemented a strict no face mask, no face shield, no entry rule for attendees. Upon entering, only 3 people could sit per pew in compliance with social distancing measures. This means no holding hands during the Lord's prayer and no interactions during "Peace be with you."
