Mosques across Saudi Arabia prepared to ensure worshippers’ safety

AL-BAHA: The General Directorate of Health Affairs in Al-Baha continues to facilitate worshippers’ entry to mosques for Friday prayers in accordance with precautionary measures.

This comes in cooperation with the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah and Guidance, and volunteers who helped worshippers perform Friday prayers in more than 136 mosques in the region.

Mosques have been prepared and sanitized, with stickers placed on each row to keep a safe distance between worshippers.

Meanwhile, Qassim police continue to ensure adherence to measures among worshippers, including social distancing and wearing masks.

Hafr Al-Batin Health Affairs continues to participate in a campaign to educate worshippers under the slogan “Return Carefully,” with more than 90 volunteers in 13 mosques, in coordination with the Mosques, Dawah and Guidance administration in the governorate.

The volunteer teams instruct worshippers to follow necessary health requirements, such as bringing prayer mats for personal use, and washing hands or using sanitizer before and after visiting the mosque.

These awareness campaigns come within the precautionary measures set in place by Saudi authorities to curb the spread of coronavirus.
