Staying safe this Eid Al-Adha

Published on Thursday, 30th July 2020

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

Mosques have now reopened and are Covid secure. This means that fewer people can attend than normally would. Please find out how your Mosque is adapting. 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.

To avoid any local lockdown measures, we are making sure Eid can be celebrated safely by encouraging those celebrating to do so safety by continuing to keep social distance from those people you don’t live with, wash your hands more frequently for at least 20 seconds during the day, and stay alert during this difficult time.

Leader of the Council, Cllr David Wright said: “We have all made huge sacrifices in the past few months and I know how hard it has been for you and your families. We must not reverse all this good work and it’s important we continue to keep our distance from those we do not live with. Stay alert this Eid when you attend prayers and while spending time celebrating with family and friends. I hope that this time next year we will be able to celebrate as we normally do. In the meantime please stay safe and Eid Mubarak.”

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.
