Faith Associates in official partnership with Bradford Council for Mosques are Risk Assessing over 100 Mosques in the city in preparation for the re-opening of places of worship for congregational prayer.
There are currently Risk Assessment trainers visiting various Mosques daily in the Bradford area ensuring they are safe to re-open once Government guidance allows in light of the new COVID-19 requirements.
Places of worship have been closed since March 2020 due to the Coronavirus outbreak in the UK. Current Government Guidance is allowing for individual prayers only, but in the Government’s Plan to Re-Build strategy document it highlighted in step 3 that places of worship could be considered for full re-opening alongside other public places.
Mosques alongside other public places will need to ensure they can open safely committing to some of the key safety guidlines provided by the Government.
