COVID-19 protection

For all our 2021 outdoor services, we will be taking various COVID protection precautions, including:

  • We ask that all attendees over age 12 be fully vaccinated.
  • Please do not attend if you have had symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or have been diagnosed or in contact with someone with COVID-19, during the past 14 days. Please see the BC Centre for Disease Control COVID-19 Self-isolation guidelines for more details: http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/covid-19/self-isolation.
  • Please maintain physical isolation, staying 6 feet apart from anyone not in your household or bubble.
  • Please bring a mask to wear while using the washrooms or in other restricted public spaces.
  • Please bring and use hand sanitizer to reduce your own and others’ risk.
  • Please bring your own food, and do not share food or beverages with others except those from your own household or bubble.
  • We will minimize sharing of space and physical objects. For example, aliyot will be taken by people standing up in their places but not gathering around close to the sefer Torah; people will sanitize their hands before and after touching shared objects (yad, sefer Torah, etc.).
