ICNL Precautions for coronavirus (COVID-19)

Assalamu Alaikum,

Dear Community Members,

As you all know that the dreaded Corona Virus has been fast spreading all over the world. Recently there have been several cases in Connecticut, as well.

As of a few minutes ago, due to the increasing risk of the coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading, Gov. Ned Lamont has declared a state of emergency in Connecticut. Though no case has yet to be reported in New London County, ICNL is advising the community to take precautions to protect themselves against the virus.

If you are feeling unwell, please do not come to the Masjid. That includes Jumu’ah Salah, and programming. It is a prophetic practice to limit movement during times of sickness.

Please wash your hands well and avoid unnecessary physical contact. If you come to the masjid, please bring your own prayer mat to limit potential contamination.

The Masjid administration will also like to advise any community members who have taken a recent trip to any of the high-risk countries as identified by the CDC to avoid coming to the Masjid and follow the guidelines as set forth by the US Government.

We pray that Allah SWT help all those who are afflicted with this disease and we pray that Allah SWT grant them shifa.

people of Connecticut, and the rest of the world safe from this virus.
