The traditional celebration of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Aglona is approaching, which will take place from 11 to 15 August. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year the holiday will be held subject to a number of restrictions.

From 11 to 13 August, the maximum number of participants in the Holy Mass will not be able to exceed a thousand people. Mass will be held at 12 and 19 hours. Participants will be required to present a digital certificate of completion of the full course of vaccination, a certificate of the transferred coronavirus or a negative test for Covid-19.

In the main services of the event on August 14 at 19:00 and on August 15 at 12:00 it will be possible to take part only with an invitation. At the same time, all requirements for the presentation of a QR code on vaccination, negative test or a certificate of a transplanted disease remain.

There will also be a division in the Sacred Square in front of the Basilica. In one part there will be pilgrims with an invitation. In the other, vaccinated, ill or pilgrims with a negative test for Covid-19.

Ensuring order and epidemiological safety will be monitored by the Zomessargi and the state police.

It is important to note that unvaccinated pilgrims can be vaccinated right during the holiday.
