This notice is to inform our members that COVID is currently widely circulating within local Jewish institutions. Also, there are both children and some adults in the community who are still unvaccinated and lacking immunity. Fortunately, to our knowledge, no case has been documented resulting from a transmission at Bnai Torah. However, given the attendance/affiliation of many members and their household family members at multiple local Jewish institutions, we are reminding you of the following provisions of the shul COVID policy:
No one should enter the shul building who has any of the possible symptoms of COVID.
No one should enter the shul building who has a household family member who has tested positive until cleared by the public health department of his City or Town
Also, out of an abundance of caution, if you or a household family member have had an exposure to a documented COVID case and been directed to get a COVID test, you should refrain from entering the building until your or their COVID status has been determined.
The safety of our members is of utmost importance and we need to continue our vigilance in enforcing protective measures.
In order to keep all members and guests safe at B'nai Torah, all participants at any function in the shul, services, meals (except when eating) MUST wear a face mask over both their nose and mouth. These requirements are mandated by the City of Springfield. Shabbat Shalom!
