A public gathering under any pretext whether social, commercial, political or religious must be avoided better.
In this smartphone stage of internet age, public gatherings are technically not necessary. Gathering communally is a very primitive kind of animal expression. Contemporarily that has become unsophisticated in terms of human comfort and convenience. In case of any argument, you may very well make that online. Otherwise COVID-19 might also join your choice of public gathering to not let you make any arguments anymore.
You may comfortably pray at home to keep your life peaceful.
