Dear Community Members,
ICCT Reopening Guidelines: PHASE 1
Dear Beloved ICCT Community,
On May 29, 2020, Governor Ned Lamont issued Executive Order No. 7TT which is now allowing houses of worship to begin to congregate under certain conditions. Starting on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, ICCT will be open for the following prayers 10 minutes before the iqāmah:
Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes EARLY, as the doors will be locked right before the iqamah is called.
Brothers and sisters are welcome to come pray, though please note that the maximum total capacity allowed in the masjid will be 78 people. This number was determined based on the total number of people that can comfortably and safely pray with social distancing inside the musallah. Each attendee's temperature will be checked at the door, and then the masjid. After the prayer, you will have 10 minutes to engage in personal worship until everyone will be asked to leave and the masjid will be locked again until the next prayer. Wudu must be performed at home as bathrooms and wudu areas will remain locked.
If any brother or sister would like to pray at the masjid, they are required to bring the following:
During phase 1, all prayers will be conducted with social distancing (6 feet of physical distance between each person). Please note that you will not be allowed to enter the masjid premises without ALL of the three above items.
**If you feel sick, are violently coughing, or have a high temperature, please stay at home. Similarly, at-risk populations are requested to stay at home; that includes anyone who is 65 years old or above or under 10 years old.**
Please note that the ICCT reopening plan is divided into 3 phases:
More details on PHASE 2 and 3 will be provided in the coming days. May Allah bless our community and rid the world of COVID-19, Ameen! For further inquiries, please contact Anis Shaikh (860.655.7860) / Nihal Khan (201.694.9737).
