The ONS (Organization for National Statistics) figures show clearly the Muslim males have been adversely affected by COVID-19. Imperative that potential / worshippers online in order to gain permission to enter the Wembley Central Masjid.
Q1 Why do I need to fill this registration form in?
Following a detailed risk assessment, as per the governments guidelines issues on the 29th June 2020, the number of worshippers that can use the Mosque in a safe and practical way, under social distancing rules has dramatically reduced.
As a public place of worship we want to support the national effort to reduce the risk of spreading the disease and hence as per government guidance we want to record worshipper details, in case of an infection we would like to inform other worshipers of potential cross contamination.
In case a registered worshipper meets an infected person, we need the ability to inform others of the potential of cross infection and the increased possibility of spreading the infection to families and loved one’s of other worshipers.
Q2. Why are only certain areas of the mosque accessible during daily Jammah (congregational) prayer?
To limit the risk of infection in our Masjid we have had to limit the access to certain areas of the mosque to the public, if more areas are open and where mixing can take place, there is an increased risk of infection. If more areas are open there is heavy responsibility to clean after every prayer, which in certain areas is impractical. Hence we are balancing access to the Masjid with maintain safety, security and hygiene.
Q3. Will our information be shared with people outside of the Masjid?
WCM Management will treat this information as strictly confidential, adhering to GDPR regulations. However, in the unfortunate event of someone attending the WCM premises diagnosed as Covid19 positive, these details will be shared with the NHS for their Test & Trace system to warn other attendees of WCM.
