Prayer near Feces

Don't say prayers or blessings within 6'7” (4 amot, or 2 m) (in any direction except in front of you) of any feces—human or animal—unless:
  • They have no odor, or 
  • They are covered by something and you cannot smell them.
Note If there are no feces in front of you as far as you can see, assume that none are there.
