Apr 24, 2020 – Health Reminder for Ramadan
As we enter this holy month, we must continue to maintain Physical Distance to keep our families and communities safe. If we don’t do this, we won’t be able to flatten the curve and defeat COVID-19, putting everyone, including our own families, in danger.
Some things to keep in mind:
1. Iftar should take place only with those who are living in your household
Family members should not visit from other households to have iftar together.
Please call or connect virtually with them!
2. For those who want to pray Taraweeh and participate in other prayers
Do not leave your home or invite others to join you. Please pray from your own homes.
3. Find online ways to observe Ramadan!
Join in on online lectures or social media campaigns to be a part of Ramadan.
4. Help spread the message to your Muslim network
We can only defeat COVID-19 with your help. Do not let our Muslim brothers and sisters endanger themselves or their families by leaving their homes.
