Health and Safety Protocols for ADAMS Facilities  
Mask is Mandatory for Prayers and Optional for all Non-Prayer Activities

Dear ADAMS Community - Assalamu Alaikum,


Effective immediately, ADAMS Main Center, Branches, and Satellite locations will CHANGE MASK REQUIREMENTS to OPTIONAL for all NON-PRAYER activities inside ADAMS facilities.  Masks are still required to be worn properly during ALL PRAYERS. The following guidelines are issued for all ADAMS locations:

  • Masks are now OPTIONAL for all Non-Prayer activities, including recreational activities and Qahwa Youth Center Events.  MASKS are REQUIRED to be worn properly during ALL Prayers. 

  • Social distancing during prayers and indoor activities are hereby REMOVED.  Prayers are to be resumed normally WITHOUT distancing between congregants.

  • Individuals coming to pray are encouraged to bring their own Prayer Mats.  ADAMS will not be providing paper prayer mats going forward.

  • Bathrooms are now be opened for use, but please continue to have Wudu prior to coming to ADAMS for prayer.

If anyone is feeling sick, it is advised not to come to the Masjid for prayers or any other indoor activity. ADAMS will continue to monitor the COVID situation, along with local and CDC guidelines. These guidelines will remain in effect until further notice.


Wasalamu Alaikum, 

ADAMS Management
