The article analyzes the religious situation in Kazakhstan during the pandemic. In the new conditions of the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which is spreading at an unprecedented speed and causing significant damage to human health and national security, new challenges and solutions are required in the activities of public and state structures. The new living conditions led to changes in the activities of all religious associations, which were primarily associated with prohi- bitions and restrictions on worship and mass religious events in accordance with the requirements of sanitary standards. It should be taken into account that the epidemiological situation in the country also had a very serious impact on the activities of state bodies, including those authorized to perform functions in terms of religious policy. New epidemiological requirements strongly influenced state-confessional re- lations and interfaith interactions in Kazakhstan, despite the stable religious situation in the country.
