General Advice for Members
Updated 23rd July 2022 by the General Secretary Office
As you are aware the UK has relaxed its Covid rules. However Covid remains prevalent with a large number of daily cases.
We have therefore reviewed our guidance to enable more people to benefit from attending our mosques while keeping precautions in place.
We will now allow any member, including women and children, to attend the mosques and any events or functions held there.
We will, however, maintain all our Covid prevention protocols including the following:
- Members attending the mosques must wear the face masks.
- Where possible temperature checks are to be taken at entrances by the administration, organisers or local Jama’at during prayer times or other events.
- Members are encouraged to be fully vaccinated as per NHS and government guidance.
- Members should avoid handshakes and embracing each other.
- If any member has tested positive for Covid they should not attend any Jama’at gathering.
- If anyone is part of a household where someone has tested positive, it is better to avoid attending Jama’at meetings.
- Please follow the links below for up to date information regarding Covid:
May Allah grant us His Grace and keep all Jama’at members under His special protection and security. Ameen.
