Earlier, the Ministry of Religious Affairs had asked mosque and musalla (prayer room) administrators to form a COVID-19 health protocol task force during Ramadan to prevent COVID-19 transmission.

“Mosques and musallas must have a team that will handle COVID-19 prevention (efforts),” the director of Islamic religious affairs and Shariah development at the ministry, Adib, said.

The formation of COVID-19 task forces in mosques and musallas is part of efforts to prevent COVID-19 transmission from increasing since the pandemic situation in the country is currently under control, he added.

The task forces’ role will be to disseminate the importance of health protocol implementation, as regulated in Circular Number 8 of 2022 regarding the Guidelines for the Implementation of Worship Activities during the 2022 Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr, Adib explained.
