Salaam Alaikum,
As we are slowly finding out more about the virus and it’s mutations, the world seems to be coming to the conclusion that social distancing will have to continue for at least the next couple years. Given this, what is the continuing guidance from Ayatullah Seestani regarding how to deal with situations that arise (in terms of our religious obligations), for example:
1) Majalis and Eid, etc. programs (should they be held?)
2) Jumah prayers or any other congregational prayers (how close should people stand together, or should we not hold Jamaat prayers at all?)
3) Visiting parents who wish to see their children/grandchildren (this would increase risk for everyone, especially older parents, but they may prefer it and wish to see family even if it is a risk, instead of being alone)
4) visiting other family/friends to keep up relations
