COVID Protocols

Temple Beth-El is striving to be a warm and inclusive community during this COVID crisis.

Throughout the pandemic, our team of medical advisors have carefully monitored state and local infection trends, hospitalization numbers, projections of future variants, as well as advancements in therapeutic treatments. Now, two years after the start of COVID, our advisors tell us that it is safe to relax our restrictions.

As a result, as of May 20, 2022, our COVID protocols

  • We welcome vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals to participate in temple functions in the building and at other locations.
  • Masks are now optional, yet encouraged at TBE events. (Events happening in a congregant’s home may still require masks and/or vaccination depending on the needs or wishes of the host.)
  • Physical distancing is no longer required. We will leave enough space so that individuals can chose to maintain social distance.
  • Please respect the choices made by other congregants to either mask or socially distance.
  • Maintain hand hygiene by sanitizing or washing your hands as appropriate.
  • Please stay home if you are feeling unwell for any reason. This is true regardless of the types of symptoms you are experiencing. Staying home is the best way to prevent the spread of germs to others.
  • If you have a known COVID exposure, please follow the CDC isolation guidelines before returning to temple functions.
