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. 


Worship 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.
