The Transition Phase will begin as soon as Brunei Darussalam reaches a vaccination rate of 70 per cent of the total population this Friday. The Ministry of Religious Affairs has provided guidelines for the reopening of mosques, suraus and religious halls nationwide according to the National COVID-19 Recovery Framework. Booking of slots for Fardhu Friday Prayer can be made through BruHealth app starting today from 9 in the morning. In a media conference on Transition Phase Guidelines, Pengiran Haji Haslin bin Pengiran Haji Ali, Acting Assistant Director of Mosque Affairs said during this pandemic, the department emphasised on mosque cleaning works particularly after mass prayers.
This include sanitising and cleaning frequently touched areas such as handrails, door knobs or handles. During the first wave, the mosques will be closed after fardhu prayers. But now, the mosques will remain open from Subuh to Isyak prayers. Congregants are urged to leave the prayer halls after performing their prayers and to allow cleaning works to be carried out.
