Updated COVID-19 Protocols

As we continue to navigate the pandemic, our Combined COVID-19 Task Force is diligently following the new scientific information and frequently reassessing our protocols, procedures, and precautions. We want to make sure that everyone in the community is aware of the protocols currently in place.  The key elements are:

  • Everyone who is eligible to do so must be fully vaccinated and boosted to participate in in-person TBO activities.
  • Vaccine and booster status should be updated at http://templebethor.org/vaccine-reporting as soon as possible and prior to in-person participation.
  • We continue to require proper masking.  Appropriate masks include one of the following: KN-95, KF-94, N-95, double surgical masks, or surgical masks doubled with a cloth mask.
  • Anyone who has attended a TBO service/event/activity, visited the building, or had a pastoral visit, and tests positive for COVID-19 within 5 days of that interaction should notify the President, Rabbi, or Office Administrator immediately, by text or phone. The identity of the person who has tested positive will be kept confidential, unless they have given permission otherwise.
The full text of our protocols (and other helpful information!) can be found on our new COVID-19 page on the website (http://templebethor.org/covid). Additional questions can be directed to Melanie Field.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we do our best to meet this challenge and stay safe and connected.
