Places of worship

Updated: 2021-10-04

  • Places of worship

    Maximum 250 people inside and 500 people outside. If the place of worship occupies an entire building, the limit applies to the building.

    The measures for funerals and weddings also apply to places of worship where these ceremonies are held.

    A distance of at least 1 metre must be maintained between people if they are not talking or if they are talking quietly, and 2 metres if they are talking or singing, even when they stay in their seat and do not move about, unless they are from the same private home or the equivalent.

    A procedure mask or face covering must be worn. The procedure mask or face covering can be taken off when the person is in their seat, is silent or speaks only in a low voice.

    Vaccination passports are not necessary to attend places of worship, unless the activity taking place there requires a passport. For example, the passport is required if the venue is rented for a performance. See the list of activities requiring a vaccination passport.
