The Grand Mosque in Mecca returned to work at its full capacity, on Sunday, after easing restrictions imposed due to the Corona epidemic.

Signs on the mosque’s grounds that were there to help worshipers maintain social distancing have been removed. People were allowed to pray side by side, as they used to before.

Video footage published by official media showed the process of removing the distancing stickers inside the corridors, courtyards and facilities of the mosque, before worshipers lined up next to each other to perform the dawn prayer.

However, all visitors to the mosque are required to be vaccinated with at least two doses against the virus, and they are also required to wear face masks while inside the corridors of the campus.
