WHAT RESTRICTIONS IN MOVEMENT MEAN FOR YOU
The government made the unprecedented move as was announced by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the 23 March 2020 urging the whole nation to stay home and going further by imposing travel restrictions. What does it mean for you?
With immediate effect you are asked to stay home. This does not apply if you are shopping for necessities, or travelling to and from work if you can’t work from home. Once a day you should go out for exercise but do so whilst practicing social distancing. Of course these restrictions also don’t apply to medical needs or care for vulnerable people. This includes any work you are undertaking with Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya, please ensure whilst volunteering for Khuddamul Ahmadiyya your local Qaid or Regional Qaid is aware. You shouldn’t undertake any of these activities if you are ill or caring for the vulnerable. Only essential shops will remain open during this period. The restrictions are in place for three weeks after which they will be reviewed. The country is getting ready to deal with the emergency but these measures will ensure the NHS does not get overwhelmed and more lives are saved.
These restrictions also apply to congregational prayers at the mosque and any other activities which will expose you to people outside of your household. Mosques remain closed to worshippers until further notice and you should offer prayers in congregation at home
As Hazrat Khalifatul-Masih V (aba) mentioned in the Friday Sermon on 20 March 2020 “One ought to adhere to the guidance issued by the Government.”
