This is to update the community on the re-opening of the masjid following the government’s latest guidelines. We are pleased to confirm that inshallah we hope to re-open, in phases, on 4th July.
As mentioned in the previous update, we have been working behind the scenes to ensure that all practical precautions, including social distancing and hygiene, have been put in place to ensure the safety of attendees and our staff. The broad process and procedures outlined in the 9 step guidelines from the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) have formed the basis for our preparations.
As the latest Office for National Statistics (ONS) data reveals, Muslim communities have been the hardest hit by Covid-19 and the risk of a second wave is ever present, so we need to proceed with caution. We cannot do everything, there will always be risk and people will have to make their individual decisions about if and when to attend. We urge the whole community to shoulder their share of the responsibility to ensure that everyone remains safe and secure so we do not have aother closure of the masjid.
There will be more detailed guidelines posted on the website next week.
