COVID-19 Guidelines

Updated 8/13/21

Dear Members,

Effective immediately, the following are the updated policies regarding COVID-19 in our Shul:

1. Those who are fully vaccinated—as defined as two weeks post one’s final vaccine shot—will not be required to wear a mask while on the Shul campus. However, those who would still like to wear a mask are more than welcome to. Those who are not yet fully vaccinated must continue to wear a mask covering both one’s mouth and nose when on Shul property, except while eating or drinking.

2. Children ages four (4) and older must wear a mask while inside the building. Outdoors on the Shul campus, children ages seven (7) and older must wear a mask. Children below these ages do not need to wear a mask while on the Shul campus.

3. If someone tests positive for COVID-19, before returning to Shul, he or she must wait ten (10) days from either start of symptoms or his or her first positive COVID-19 test, whichever is sooner; must be fever-free for 24 hours; and his or her symptoms must be improving.

4. If one had known exposure, as defined by the CDC, to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, he or she must not return to Shul for seven (7) days and must monitor his or her symptoms during those seven days. He or she need not get a negative test in order to return to Shul but shall symptoms arise, he or she should not return to Shul. However, if said individual has either tested positive to COVID-19 in the last 90 days or is fully vaccinated, he or she does not need to quarantine, but rather should monitor for symptoms and should not return to Shul shall symptoms arise.

With vaccines readily available around the city, we urge anyone not yet vaccinated to go out and get vaccinated. Please contact the Shul office if you need help scheduling a vaccine appointment or for guidance on how and where to get an appointment. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us and we will address your matter with the utmost confidence and with full confidentiality.

Thank you for understanding,

Rabbi Ashie Schreier
