Changes to Beth David's COVID-19 Protocols   2022-10-26

Effective October 26, 2022

  • We are discontinuing the requirement to pre-register for in-person services and programs at Beth David, as this practice was based on earlier public health recommendations regarding contact tracing. Pre-registration will continue for services and programs offered on Zoom in order to obtain the link.
  • Given that we are all now more knowledgeable about the importance of maintaining a safe physical distance from one another, we are discontinuing the assigning of seats in the main sanctuary for services, although we continue to recommend that people observe social distancing measures, as recommended by public health. 
  • Masks will no longer be mandatory for smaller group activities (less than 20 persons), such as weekday services, programs, classes, and other activities. The use of properly fitting, medical grade masks (such as N-95) while in our building will still be strongly encouraged.
  • Given a recent surge in COVID cases, outbreaks in long-term care, hospital warnings, and the nature of worship services (i.e., sitting in an enclosed area, singing for lengthy periods of time), masking (only) will continue to be mandatory for Shabbat morning services and larger gatherings (20 persons or more) for the time being. We will continue to assess this requirement on a weekly basis, based on prevailing public health guidance, and will make further changes as appropriate.
