Face Masks/Coverings required for all Prayers and Programs

AsSalaam Alaikum,

This is to inform all community members and attendees of the Islamic Center of Burlington that effective immediately Face Covering has been made required by the management of the Islamic Center of Burlington in all prayers and programs inside the Masjid.
We request to follow the below guidelines and help us to keep safe our community Insha’Allaah.
COVID Protocols:
We want to remind all families to continue to do their part and stay at home if any member of the household is not feeling well.
If any member of the household has experienced any of the following symptoms in the past 72 hours, please, stay at home and have tested for COVID-19 or quarantine.
    • Fever 100 or higher, chills or shaking chills
    • Cough, sore throat
    • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
    • Loss of taste or smell
    • Headache, muscle aches or body aches
    • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea

Face Covering:
All attendees and staff MUST wear face coverings or masks in ICB premises.

A face covering that covers the nose and mouth must be worn by all individuals in the ICB building. Face coverings must also be worn outside when social distancing cannot be observed.

Individuals may be excused from the requirement for the following list of reasons, per CDC guidance:
The individual:

    • has a medical, behavioral, or other challenge making it unsafe to wear a face mask or face covering.
    • has trouble breathing
    • is unconscious
    • is incapacitated
    • cannot remove the mask or face covering without assistance

Additionally, face masks or face coverings will not be required when appropriate social distancing is enforced:

    • while eating or drinking
    • while outside

We request all attendees to let the management of the Islamic Center of Burlington know if you or someone in your household have tested positive for COVID-19. We shall notify the Burlington Board of Health to assist to trace likely contacts and advise contacts to isolate and self-quarantine. Please, send an email to info@icburlington.org to notify the management.

Make Dua, offer more prayers, and rely on Allah’s assistance during these times.

WaSalaam,
ICB Management
