Shops and commercial establishments can remain open during prayer times in the Kingdom, according to a circular issued by the Federation of Saudi Chambers on Thursday.

The commercial and economic activities can also continue throughout the working hours, including the prayer times, the federation said in its directive.

The federation explained that this decision is part of the precautionary measures to curb the spread of coronavirus, as well as to ensure the health and safety of shoppers and customers.

It also aims at avoiding crowding, gatherings near shops when they remain closed during prayer times.

In a statement, the federation said that the move is aimed at improving the shopping experience and raising the level of services provided to shoppers and clients.

The federation said that the decision was taken after having made the necessary coordination with the relevant authorities.

“We hope from you to continue open shops and pursue commercial and economic activities throughout working hours with receiving shoppers and customers,” the federation said in the circular to shops and commercial establishments.

They have been instructed to make the necessary arrangements and take appropriate actions to organize the work and provide services on a rotation basis among workers in a way that does not impede workers, shoppers and customers in performing prayers.
