The Great Mosque of Mecca, in Saudi Arabia, has returned to host the faithful to the fullest of its capacity and without physical distancing, after the entrances were first blocked and then quoted for health reasons during the pandemic. However, visitors must be vaccinated and wear masks for the duration of the visit. The Ka’bah – the black cubic building located in the center of the mosque courtyard revered by all Muslims – will still remain cordoned off.

Mecca is the destination of the Hajj, the great pilgrimage that must be made at least once in a lifetime by every Muslim, at a certain time of the year, as long as his health and economic means allow it. During the pandemic, pilgrims from abroad were banned from entering Mecca, but the authorities began to reduce the restrictions starting in August.
