Dubai: Bahrain’s Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments has closed four mosques and a community centre in the Capital, Muharraq and Southern governorates for one week for failing to comply with the precautionary measures and the established health protocols, putting worshippers’ health at risk.
The decision was taken in view of the laxity of those in charge of the mosques in implementing the required precautionary measures, especially those related to examining the worshippers’ vaccination certificates and keeping a safe distance between worshippers, the Ministry said.
The ministry added that it had consulted with the National Medical Taskforce to Combat the Coronavirus before announcing the closure of the mosques.
The time will be used to enable the dedicated teams to carry out the contact tracing and the sanitisation process. A team will also make sure that the precautionary measures are properly followed in the mosques, the ministry said.
