COVID-19 Announcments

Asalaamu’ Alaykum Dear Community Members,

I pray you’re in good health.

In the current environment, it’s important for all of us to take precaution and be more conscious about each other’s health and safety. The COVID-19 virus condition is worsening by the day and will continue to worsen before it starts to get better. At IABA, we’re committed to protecting our community. We’re adhering to CDC’s recommendation of social distancing and the center will remain closed until further notice.

We advise all to take this very seriously and take all the necessary precautions as suggested by the CDC and other public health organizations. I have included information compiled by our COVID-19 team at the bottom of this email. Please review the information provided as it is imperative that we follow them to keep ourselves and others safe.

Please note if you’re sick or have symptoms, Call your primary health provider or Austin Public Health at 311 immediately.
