Unfortunately, due to the increased incidences of confirmed COVID-19 in the CSRA, ISA EC has decided that for the safety of all our members, after July 24th large gatherings, i.e. Jummah and Eid, will not be held at the Islamic Community Center of Augusta until further notice.

A decision on daily prayers will be announced soon.

We want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of our community Members very seriously. Like you, we are closely monitoring the quickly developing effects of the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are all in this together. We will continue to monitor the situation and will follow guidance from public health officials and government agencies, so we can continue to support our community as needed.
