Staying safe this Eid Al-Adha

30 July 2020

This Eid Al-Adha it is more important than ever to make sure you and your family are staying safe.

Local mosques are now reopening and making sure they are Covid secure. This means that fewer people can attend than normally would. Please find out how your Mosque is adapting by getting in touch with them directly.

Some faith leaders continue to use digital tools to bring worshippers together for prayers and sermons and we would encourage you to take advantage of these services where possible, to mark Eid-Al-Adha safely.

Stay alert this Eid when you attend prayers and while spending time celebrating with family and friends. Please continue to keep your distance from those people you don’t live with and wash your hands more frequently for at least 20 seconds during the day.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus – a new continuous cough, a high temperature or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – get a test immediately and isolate at home. You should not invite anyone to your house, go to other houses or the mosque, and you should not prepare food for others.

Find out more about getting tested on the NHS website, or call 119.
