Visitors urged to get vaccine to ensure their safety as well as other people’s

JEDDAH: The Ramadan operation plan for the Two Holy Mosques in Makkah and Madinah has been announced, with visitors being urged to get the COVID-19 vaccine to ensure their safety as well as other people’s.

Sheikh Abdurahman Al-Sudais, who is head of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, said that the operation plan involved receiving all pilgrims in line with the strict health and safety measures that had been imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19, while also ensuring that mosque visitors were given enough ease to make the best of their experience.
“The purpose is to provide a unique experience to Doyoof Al-Rahman (guests of Allah) that will combine performing rituals and preservation of health,” said Al-Sudais. “In the wake of the continued pandemic, I urge visitors of the Two Holy Mosques to get the COVID-19 vaccine to ensure their safety and (that of) other pilgrims and worshippers.”

There will be five areas available for prayers at Makkah’s Grand Mosque, including the eastern courtyard, and a designated area for worshippers with special needs. Umrah pilgrims will also be able to perform Tawaf on the first floor throughout the month.
