The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque has begun removing social distancing stickers from the indoor and outdoor corridors, squares and facilities of the Masjid Al Haram (Grand Mosque) in Makkah in line with the recent decision to ease precautionary measures and the resumption of receiving Umrah performers and visitors in the Two Holy Mosques at full capacity.
This was announced by Under-Secretary-General for Tafwij and Crowds Management at the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque Eng. Osama bin Mansour Al-Hujaili.
Al-Hujaili said that the stickers were placed to help implement physical distancing inside the Grand Mosque in response to the health authorities to confront the emerging corona virus.
The visual identity surrounding the Kaaba was also changed, by replacing the plastic barriers adjacent to the Kaaba with tape barriers, in a measure aimed at receiving visitors to the Grand Mosque at its full capacity.
