Assalamo-alaikum, Dear SNMC community members,
It’s extremely difficult to disinfect and dry any surfaces including carpets at SNMC for regular prayers on regular basis.
Therefore, elderly (65+) , 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 show any of the above symptoms or if you use medications to suppress immune system or 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 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 SNMC management and imams advise the community to pray at home.
Friday night programs and other lectures will be streamed live so that people can watch and listen to these programs from their homes.
Any further changes would be communicated to the community through diffent media outlets of SNMC.
