Worshippers in Madinah performed the last Friday prayer for this Hijri year at the Prophet’s Mosque, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
They headed to the mosque early in the morning to perform their prayers while abiding by regulations and instructions to prevent the spread of coronavirus, including maintaining distance from others and wearing a face mask.
The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques ensured that people observed COVID-19 protocols, and that cleaning and sanitizing work was carried out using eco-friendly products that did not harm public health.
The presidency installed thermal cameras at the entrance of the mosque that work from 6 meters away in order to detect worshippers with a fever. It also made hand gel available at all the mosque’s gates.
