The Islamic Center of Vallejo has been temporarily closed until further notice since the evening of Wednesday, March 18th, due to the coronavirus situation.
All events and activities have been cancelled. There are no daily congregational prayers or Jummah (Friday) prayers. This includes all five daily prayers: Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, and Isha. The gates will be closed at the masjid at all times.
During Ramadan, there will be no Taraweeh prayers or iftar dinners until further notice.
Given the ongoing situation, we’re not sure precisely on what date we’ll be re-opening, and what safety and crowd restrictions may be in place at the masjid at that time, but we will let you know as soon as we can.

Individual Preventative Measures
We all have a responsibility to help reduce the risk of infection (by COVID-19 or the flu) in our communities. Here are the steps we will be taking moving forward as a community:
- Practice good hygiene, including thoroughly washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and covering your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or a flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing. Also, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- If you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing, or other flu-like symptoms, please don’t leave your home.
- If you believe you or a family member have been in close contact with confirmed cases of COVID-19 or may be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, please call your health care provider immediately. Give them a call; do not visit them in-person without notice.
- Avoid close contact with anyone who has a fever, cough or other flu-like symptoms.
- Practice “social distancing” by maintaining six feet of space between yourself and others in gathering places. Do not shake hands, hug, or kiss people on the cheeks.
- Adhere to the current travel restrictions, which currently include China, South Korea, Iran, and Europe. If possible, call ahead before visiting your doctor.
