Based on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), infectious disease expert Dr. Mazen Kherallah, and the orders of Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, The Mecca Center Executive Committee has decided to suspend daily prayers at the center until further notice.
Governor Pritzker and public health officials are urging people to avoid gatherings of 10 people or more. The CDC has also called for the cancellation of in-person events of 50 or more people for the next eight weeks to try to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).
In addition, DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin has issued a disaster proclamation which establishes an emergency plan and additional funding to combat COVID-19.
