COVID Policy Update
June 2, 2022
We have seen a surge in Covid cases in May due to a new variant and we have recently become aware of several Covid cases in the area. This surge has peaked, and we want everyone to remain cautious until infection levels are lower. Therefore, we encourage our members to wear a mask when inside our building. This is your choice to make based on your personal risk assessment, age, and medical history. A properly worn mask provides a layer of protection from acquiring the virus. If it is your preference to wear a mask, please feel comfortable wearing a mask in our facility.
The Shir Tikvah building remains open for in person events or if you wish to visit. Food service will continue to be provided. This allows oneg’s to follow services and meals to be served.
Services will continue in person and on Zoom. We encourage you to attend the service at the synagogue if you feel comfortable being inside the building.
We are not requiring proof of vaccination but urge all our members, for everyone’s safety, to get fully vaccinated and a booster.
This is no time to let our guard down. Prior to attending any event, please self-screen yourself for the potential of COVID-19 or any illness. Ask yourself, if you are not feeling well in any way, if you have had a temperature at or above 100° or if you had close contact with someone who is currently sick. If you answer yes to any of these questions, please stay home for your safety and the safety of your fellow congregants.
We all hope the threat of Covid continues to decline and our lives get back to normal. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope this will be our last Covid update. Please stay safe and healthy.
Shir Tikvah is a welcoming congregation with both Reform and Conservative services. We are a warm, caring and inclusive community that offers opportunities for spiritual reflection and growth through the celebration of Shabbat, holidays, and lifecycle events, as well as providing experiences for life-long learning.
