Muslims in Connecticut are observing their second Ramadan since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Imam Arif Vohra says the mosque has been open for prayers throughout the pandemic, with masking and social distancing firmly in place.
He says attendance has been way down since COVID-19 first hit.
Ramadan marks a month of fasting and self-sacrifice during the day, usually punctuated by large meals shared with family and friends after dark.
Worshippers say the pandemic has put a damper on those sundown celebrations. They say they're looking forward to truly reconnecting with a community they've been missing.
Ramadan will be observed until May 13.
