For last several weeks, we have seen an increased evidence of the rise in COVID-19 infections across the country, including here in Delaware.
We know the vaccine protects against serious illness and hospitalization. However, we also recognize that the Delta variant is transmissible even when vaccinated. Given the CDC's recent recommendation regarding wearing masks indoors even when vaccinated, and out of an abundance of caution and concern for the well-being of our members, we are requiring masks to be worn when attending any prayer services in-person. Wearing masks will be required regardless of vaccination status.
In addition, please note that you MUST also bring your own prayer mat.
We did not take the decision to require masks lightly. Please know the intent in doing so is to save lives. We hope you and your family remain safe and healthy by the grace of Allah.
