Celebrate Eid Al-Adha safely in Redbridge
Published: 31 July 2020
If you’re observing Eid Al-Adha, please remember that you need to align with the government’s Covid-19 guidance safely.
- Mosques in Redbridge began to reopen safely earlier this month, but please check with your Mosque before visiting to follow the required safety instructions and guidance.
- Please be aware that the number of people able to worship at mosques will be significantly reduced to maintain social distancing.
- When visiting a mosque, you will be required to give your details for NHS Test and Trace, to keep you and your community safe.
- If you can’t visit your Mosque, please worship at home.
Keep your distance:
- No handshakes or hugs for family and friends outside of your household or support bubble.
Meet friends and family safely:
- Gather indoors with members of up to two households only.
- Gather outdoors in public spaces or parks in a group of up to six people from different households only, or in larger groups if everyone is exclusively from one or two households.
- Limit the number of people you see over short periods to help protect yourself and others.
- Stay in touch using the phone and video calls.
Maintain good hygiene:
- Keep washing your hands regularly, with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use hand sanitiser.
- Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean.
- Remember to wear a face-covering anywhere it may be more difficult to maintain social distancing, such as when entering or leaving the mosque. You must also wear a face-covering in all shops and on public transport.
If you (or someone in your household or support bubble) have symptoms of Covid-19:
- Self-isolate at home, and do not invite anyone over to gather in your home. Arrange a test through the NHS straightaway.
Eid Mubarak to all those who will be celebrating this Friday and over the weekend.
