Assalamo-alaikum, Dear community members,
It’s extremely difficult to disinfect and dry any surfaces including carpets at ICC for regular prayers on regular basis.
Therefore, elderly (70+) , children, persons with underlying medical conditions requiring medications such as diabetes, blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, liver disease, kidney disease, cancers, hepatitis, HIV etc; persons with symptoms such as cough, cold, flu, sore throat, runny nose, fever, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, diarrhea and vomiting etc. should pray at home.
If you have been in contact with any possible COVID-19 case or if you travelled in the last 14 days please don’t come to the Masjid.
For others, you may be apparently healthy and not showing any symptoms but maybe carrying the virus, therefore, you must take all possible precautions to make sure that you don’t transmit it to others (if God forbid you are carrying the virus). Make sure that you make ablution at home and bring clean prayer mat with yourself, please keep the distance, don’t shake hands, come on time and leave immediately after the prayer.
Please note that as a precaution ICC management advises the community to pray at home.
