Under all of these requirements, it is BETTER for all members to stay at home, so that you will not get, nor spread the virus to anyone else. Especially the elderly and those with vulnerable immune systems. We pray to Allah to keep our community and the whole world safe.
We first seek the help of Allah and take every possible effort to serve Allah by serving our community. 
" اللهم إني أعوذ بك من البرص والجنون والجذام ومن سيّء الأسقام "
" The Prophet ( peace upon him ) used to say: O Allah, I seek refuge in thee from leprosy, madness, elephantiasis, and evil diseases."

عن عثمان بن عفان رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ‏ "‏ما من عبد يقول في صباح كل يوم ومساء وكل ليلة‏:‏ بسم الله الذي لا يضر مع اسمه شيء في الأرض ولا في السماء وهو السميع العليم، ثلاث مرات، إلا لم يضره شيء‏"‏‏.‏ رواه أبو داود والترمذي وقال حديث حسن صحيح
'Uthman bin 'Affan (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "He who recites three times every morning and evening: 'Bismillahil-ladhi la yadurru ma'as-mihi shai'un fil-ardi wa la fis-sama'i, wa Huwas-Sami'ul-'Alim (In the Name of Allah with Whose Name there is protection against every kind of harm in the earth or in the heaven, and He is the All-Hearing and All-Knowing),' nothing will harm him."
[Abu Dawud and At- Tirmidhi].

May Allah remove this calamity that is among us and protect us from any evil.

Thank you for your patience and remain safe.
