These processions have taken the visitors' routes as a place to provide these services, taking into account the areas that witness dense visitor numbers."
He explained that: “As a result of the exceptional circumstance and situation in the country, the processions have intensified their preventive and sanitary measures in the services provided to visitors, in terms of sterilizing the place in addition to the use of utensils and cups of single use, taking into account the health conditions for preparing the meals that are distributed to them, as well as educational and guided tours for the accompanying processions to ensure compliance with health directives.

The owners of these processions will go out on foot to have two honors, the honor of serving and the honor of Ziyarat."
