Bathurst's Muslim population will have to observe its prayers from home, after the Al Sahabah Mosque in Kelso had to close its doors due to the coronavirus.
Jameel Qureshi, a member of the Muslim community, said the mosque had to indefinitely close due to new government regulations.
"We're encouraging people to pray at home and do what they can until things get better," he said.
"There's no live stream. We did have our Friday prayers, where there's a sermon for about half an hour and then we say our prayers. That will be cancelled for the time been."
Mr Qureshi explained that members of the Muslim community could've gone to the mosque any day to prayer, but that it will now have to be completely closed.
"Obviously your faith and prayers are very important in Islam but it's more important to not do more harm to mankind," he said.
"You have an obligation and responsibility to other people in the community and that's the community as a hole, not just the Muslim community.
"We have to be responsibility to do the best we can and look after each other as best as we can."
