Eid al-Adha is due to start on the evening of Thursday 30 July 2020, and end in the evening of Monday 3 August. Ahead of the festivities, please find below a text message for GP practices should they want to send to their patients.
Please note, the message has been written so that it is appropriate for all patients, as we are aware practices may be unable to filter patient data by religious affiliation.
We would encourage you to send this message as it is intended to provide clear guidance on social distancing for patients celebrating Eid, many of whom may be at higher risk from coronavirus due to their ethnicity.
Similar copy is being placed on CCG public websites and will be tweeted via CCG Twitter accounts.
Eid Mubarak to all our patients! If you are celebrating Eid al-Adha this week, please remember to follow social distancing rules. This will stop the spread of coronavirus & protect the most vulnerable.
