Catholics should obey pandemic protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as they observe Ash Wednesday, Malacañang said on Wednesday. 

Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a 40-day season marked by intense prayer, fasting, and abstinence.

Last year, clergymen sprinkled dry dust on worshipers to keep wider distance and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
