The Abode’s Response to COVID-19

March 12, 2020


To the Abode Community from the Abode Board,


Abode leadership has been closely monitoring the escalation of the Coronavirus pandemic. Due to the rapidly escalating nature of the pandemic, we are cancelling all public events, classes, meals, Universal Worship and all other gatherings, effective immediately. This includes all community meals, which will now be closed for anyone not living or working on campus (only those living or working in Razzaq, Alim, Quddus and Vakil may come to scheduled meals). This also includes use of the sauna, until further notice.


All health authorities clearly emphasize social distancing as the best way to deter the spread of COVID-19. We have decided to take these steps out of an abundance of caution. We are actively formulating plans for next steps and as this issue unfolds we will continue to evaluate the situation and communicate our plans. There is much unknown and still evolving. Thank you for understanding our decision and for continuing to support one another other during this unprecedented and unsettling time.


If you are living off campus and have questions please contact Sarfaraz by texting or calling her at (413) 281-5130


If you live on campus and have questions please e-mail Jamelah or text her at (646) 538 -3543 until further notice.


Thank you for cooperation. Stay safe and healthy.

The Abode Board and Administrative Team
