The health and safety of our community members is of utmost importance. We ask everyone to adhere to the following rules outlined below: 

The London Muslim Mosque is not responsible and will not be held liable for any congregant sustaining harm, injury, or illness as a result of their attendance.

  • The following congregants should not come to the mosque: (1) those who are not feeling well, (2) have travelled outside the country in the last 14 days and have been told to quarantine (as per the federal quarantine requirements), or (3) have come in contact with a case of suspected or confirmed COVID-19 in the last 14 days without proper personal protective equipment. Temperature devices will be used to verify your wellness status.
  • Three prayers will be performed on Friday to accommodate as many people as needed
  • The Khutbah and prayer together will not exceed 20 minutes in order to allow the following congregation to form without cross traffic forming.
  • All facilities other than the prayer hall will be inaccessible (this includes the washrooms). Of special mention is the kitchen. No food or drink will be sold or consumed on the premises.
  • All the Qur’an shelves will be encased with plastic rendering them inaccessible.
  • We will provide a few sanitizing stations at the entrances and exits. You are encouraged to use them upon entering and leaving. We will also make sure to sanitize the premises after each prayer. We will also keep all doors leading to the prayer hall open and guarded to decrease any possibility of contamination through touch. 

 

Age Restrictions:

  • No congregants below the age of 12 will be allowed on the premises. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
  • We recommend congregants above the age of 70, who are not fully vaccinated, to pray at home for their own safety. Congregants above the age of 70 attending prayer may do so but at their own risk.

 

Before coming to the mosque, please make sure to have the following with you:

  • Your own prayer mat. You will not be allowed to the mosque without a prayer mat.
  • Your reservation (a paper copy or on your cell phone and a government issued photo ID). Please be prepared to show this to our volunteers or you will not be let in.
  • A facemask to be worn always while on the premises.
  • Your wudu! Washrooms will not be accessible. Please make sure to use the washroom and do your Wudu before coming to the mosque. No wudu will be allowed on the premises.

 

Upon arriving on the premises, you are required to:

  • Maintain a two-meter distance between you and the other person (marks will be on the ground to help you). Please do not shake hands or hug anyone.
  • Bring a clear plastic bag to put your shoes in. You will have to keep your shoes with you. Shoe racks are not accessible, neither are shoehorns.
  • Leave immediately after Fard prayer. Sunnah and Nafl prayers are to be performed at home. No social gatherings are permitted.
  • Do not approach the Imam for any inquiries. That may be done through phone or social media.
  • Do not use electric outlets to charge devices.
  • Make sure to follow lines of dismissal when prayers are complete and drive off in an organized manner to facilitate emptying the premises.
  • Make sure to obey the instructions of the volunteers and security staff, and remember they are giving their time to ensure our safety. Offensive and threatening behavior by any member of the congregation will not be tolerated.

 

After leaving the premise, you are required to:

  • Promptly report any symptoms, God forbid, that may be identified with COVID-19 infection by contacting the London Muslim Mosque. You are encouraged not to visit different places of worship during the pandemic to help in tracing any possible infection.
