“Tarawih’s activities are also limited by people. Most of them are local residents. Because there are also many prayer rooms here, each RT has a prayer room that performs tarawih,” he said.

Regarding the application of health protocols, Suhendar said that the mosque leadership also prepared a number of facilities such as a hand washing area at the front of the mosque, and required the use of masks for the faithful.
