Community Foundation ran a one-day training course on the 4th July, to prepare mosque staff, volunteers and trustee with essential knowledge and skills in reopening mosque after the lockdown. The training was attended by representatives from various mosques in Birmingham and delivered by Nozmul Hussain Chief Executive of Community Foundation at the Jami Mosque and Islamic Centre in Small Heath. Participants learnt about all the things that needed to be done before reopening the mosque such as carrying out a risk assessment, drafting a Covid-19 policy and guidelines, making changes to premises and operating times to reduce risks. Participants also learnt about legal duties and role of trustee, staff and volunteers and keeping premises safe for employees and visitors. The session ended with some practical workshop on how to take temperature reading, crowd control whilst maintaining social distance and what to do if a visitor has Covid-19 symptoms.
