In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, practicing social distancing is highly recommended especially during the days of Eid Al-Adha, as families and friends unite to pray together and give alms. 

Even though social gatherings are normal during Eid, avoiding it - at all costs - is essential to reduce the chance of spreading the disease. Here’s why we think it’s important to avoid mass gatherings during Eid Al-Adha:  

  1. Some Covid-19 patients are asymptomatic, so you may never know if there are virus carriers in your gathering 

  2. Maintaining personal hygiene could be difficult during a social gathering where activities are happening everywhere

  3. It could be detrimental to the health of the elderly, children or those who could have compromised immunity

 

So, in Droobi, we believe that the essence of Eid al Adha is all about sacrifices. Honor its meaningful practice by prioritizing public health and safety over personal interests and try to follow these safety tips during Eid al-Adha:

  1. Send gifts to your loved ones, instead of paying them a visit

  2. Avoid going out unnecessarily and limit shopping trips as much as possible

  3. Connect with relatives online or arrange a virtual gathering

  4. Use disposable food items including utensils and dishes. If disposable items are not feasible, ensure that all non-disposable food items are washed with dish soap and hot water and please don’t share food items that are difficult to clean and sanitize.

 

Happy Eid from Droobi Family!
