Covid Protocol

Shir Hadash Health and Safety Recommendations

February 15, 2022

  1. Indoor Shir Hadash events:

These events are restricted to individuals ages 5 and older who have been fully vaccinated, including a booster shot for those eligible.

Masks are required for all those 5 and older except while speaking at the bimah. If more than one person is standing at the bimah, those not speaking should wear masks and socially distance from the speaker.

Because masks are required, events involving food are not currently allowed.

Seating arrangements should allow for social distancing between members who are not part of a single family unit.

Special provisions will be made for children under age 5 (eg attendance at a baby naming ceremony) on a case-by-case basis.

2. Shabbat services run jointly with Temple Ohabei Shalom will follow TOS policy.

3. Outdoor Shir Hadash events:

These events are restricted to those ages 5 and older who have been fully vaccinated.

Participants should either wear a mask or maintain social distance for all events involving 10 or more people.

4. All Shir Hadash events:

individuals who have acute infectious symptoms (eg new cough, new sore throat, new diarrhea, new fever) should, in the interest of the health of the community, not attend Shir Hadash events.
