However, the duration for the prayers, including sermons, in all mosques must be completed within 15 minutes, according to the spokesman of NCEMA.

People infected with COVID-19 who are being under treatment, those exposed to infected people, and people with chronic diseases are prohibited from attending Eid prayers, he further added, stressing that gatherings and shaking hands are also prohibited.

Prayers will take place in approved mosques and prayer halls (musallas) around the country and services facilities will be closed, Dr. Al-Dhaheri noted, affirming that elderly people over the age of 60 and children under the age of 12 should not go to mosques for their own safety.
