Riyadh: With the lifting of most COVID-19 restrictions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, thousands of worshippers at the Grand Mosque in Makkah and Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah offered Friday prayer without social distancing.

On March 5, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia lifted most COVID-19 restrictions in the kingdom. This included scrapping social distancing among worshippers at the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque. However, worshippers are required to wear face masks.
