The re-opening committee, which includes congregational physicians, will continue to monitor conditions in our community, as well as guidance from government agencies. If you host events, please check this page regularly as we make updates based on current conditions.

We recommend that each individual take precautions and pursue activities based on their own comfort level and their sense of their vulnerability to COVID-19. 

We recommend that members review the CDC website for their latest guidance at  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html

Health Requirements 

Please do not enter the Temple if you are experiencing any symptoms that could indicate COVID-19 infection (fever>100 degrees, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fatigue, headache, body aches, runny nose or congestion, new loss of sense of taste or smell) or if you meet criteria for isolation or quarantine because of COVID-19. 

Masking Guidance

-  Masking with a high-quality mask (N95, KN95, KF94) is recommended for those who may have been exposed to COVID-19 within the prior 10 days.

- Masking with a high-quality mask is recommended for those who are at high risk or who want to decrease their risk of getting COVID-19.

- Adult and child sized masks are available near the main entrance on the first floor.

Vaccination Guidance

 - Being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 is the best protection for the individual and those around them. 

- We recommend that everyone receive all COVID-19 vaccinations for which they are eligible.

General Precautions

- Remember that activities that involve close contact and the close sharing of exhaled air, whether indoors or outdoors, are higher risk.

- Coronavirus transmission is less likely to occur during outdoor rather than indoor activities. 

- In addition to the precautions above, the risk of infection is decreased by increasing ventilation, maintaining distance, and by washing hands frequently.

Food and Drink

- Eating and drinking are allowed in the temple and at all temple-related activities.

- Remember that the risk of infection is decreased by increasing the distance between those who are eating and drinking. 

- We highly recommend that people take their food and drink to the most ventilated area available, such as the balcony when possible.

- Food and drink should be served according to the kitchen committee protocols.

School & Family Learning Protocols

COVID-19 protocols are the same for the family learning activities as for the temple as a whole.

Neighborhood Shabbat

- Neighborhood Shabbats are temple-related activities. All temple COVID-19 protocols should be followed.

- Food and drink should be served according to kitchen committee protocols.

- Please do not attend a Neighborhood Shabbat if you are experiencing any symptoms that could indicate COVID-19 infection (fever>100 degrees, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat,  fatigue, headache, body aches, runny nose or congestion, new loss of sense of taste or smell) or if  they meet criteria for isolation or quarantine because of COVID-19.
