Coronavirus is highly contagious – your co-operation is essential for us to keep yourself and others, safe.
If you FEEL UNWELL DO NOT COME TO THE MASJID. Self isolate and call 111.
If you are infected, and still decide to come to the Masjid, consider that YOU may be the cause of the closure of the entire Masjid.
If public gatherings are banned by the Government in the coming weeks, we will have no option other than to limit numbers of Musallees at prayer times – or even temporarily close the mosque.
Remember – our Prophet (SAW) used to sneeze into his elbow or into his garments, thereby protecting others from germs. Therefore please, think not only of yourself but think also of others you may come into contact with.
EDUCATE YOURSELF on how to spot symptoms of Coronavirus:
- respiratory symptoms
