The largest number of worshipers, 40,356, came out to perform the Maghrib prayer, according to statistical figures compiled by the Agency for the Prophet’s Mosque.
The mosque opened 11 doors to receive worshipers one hour before the Fajr prayer and closes after Isha prayer. Entry is strictly in compliance with all the precautionary measures and preventive protocol taken by the presidency, as well as by the health and security authorities to protect worshipers from coronavirus.
The congregation has been limited to a maximum 40 percent of the mosque’s capacity at a time.
The agency’s plan also included placing thermal detection cameras on 11 doors designated for the entry and these include seven for men and four for women. Children are barred from entering the mosque.
The agency stressed the need for worshipers to adhere to precautionary measures and to wear face masks while coming to the mosque, and to maintain the specified distance between worshipers in each row and in between rows.
