Covering mirrors in Bet Avel

Question:
Must all the mirrors in a beit avel be covered, or only those in the room where there are prayers? Are they left covered on Shabbat?

Answer:

All of the mirrors should be covered. [Some have the custom to only cover the mirror in the room where there are prayers.]

The mirrors may be uncovered on Shabbat. If there are prayers taking place on Shabbat, the mirrors  where they are praying should remain covered.
