Hamilton Masjid closed until 23 February 2022

The Waikato Muslim Association Inc advises that the Hamilton Masjid at 921 Heaphy Terrace, Claudelands will be closed for three days until 23 February 2022 because a COVID-19 positive case visited the masjid recently.

"One of the worshippers who attends our masjid has informed us he has tested positive for COVID-19. We pray for his full and swift recovery and thank him for informing us," said Asad Mohsin, President of the Waikato Muslim Association Inc.

"While the masjid has not been formally identified as a location of interest yet, we have closed for deep cleaning. We are also working to inform worshippers who may have been exposed," said Asad Mohsin.

"We encourage anyone who visited the Hamilton Masjid for Maghrib (sunset) or Isha (night) prayers on Saturday 19 February to check the Ministry of Health website and follow the health instructions," said Asad Mohsin.

"We will inform you as soon as the masjid is ready to re-open," said Asad Mohsin.
