Phase 2 (from 26 Jun 2020): Resume congregational worship.
Individual Prayer: Max 50 worshippers at any 1 time.
Congregational Prayer: 2 sessions for Friday Prayers
50 congregants per session. Sermons and prayers will not go beyond 20 minutes, and congregants will need to adhere to safe distancing measures including when performing prayers.
To manage the demand for these congregational prayer slots, Muis has developed an online booking system. MUIS will offer slots for the first three weeks, on 26 June, 3 July and 10 July. For these three weeks, individuals are allowed only one slot for now, to allow more members of the community the opportunity to perform Friday prayers.
Children below the age of 12, those with pre-existing chronic respiratory conditions and those 60 years old and above are highly encouraged to continue praying at home. As they are more vulnerable to get an infection, it is best that they are not exposed to the risk by going out and attending congregational prayer.
