IMPORTANT NOTE: ALL OF THE FOLLOWING POLICIES APPLY REGARDLESS OF A PERSON’S COVID-19 IMMUNITY STATUS, WHETHER AS A RESULT OF VACCINATION OR PAST INFECTION WITH COVID-19.

No one may enter the building without a mask, and a mask must be worn at all times by those over the age of 2 while on shul premises, covering the mouth and nose.  Masks will NOT be available at the entrance.

All people inside the building must maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet at all times.

People should refrain from conversing inside the sanctuary and the rest of the building. If they must converse they should be separated by at least six feet or, better, conduct the conversation outdoors. There will be a volunteer to monitor interactions and ask people to keep their distance and minimize conversation.

Congregants attending services are encouraged to find a seat immediately in the sanctuary upon entering the building and to refrain from leaving their seat.

People regularly residing in the same household may sit together and may move chairs to accommodate their entire party. People who do not regularly reside in the same household must sit separately.

Children must stay with their parents at all times and parents are responsible for ensuring that their children stay with them and wear their masks.

For maximum airflow, the doors to the Sukkah garden will remain open during services.

All people (and all members of their party) visiting the building for any reason must have an appointment (for minyan and Shabbat/holidays this means registering on the website) and must complete the online health status questionnaire within the designated number of hours before arrival. Families of Bnei Mitzvah are responsible for ensuring that their guests complete the questionnaire and for communicating these policies to their guests.

There will be no access to the coatroom. Coats, bags, umbrellas, and other personal items should remain with the congregant at all times.

There will be no access to other parts of the building without an appointment. This includes front office and gift shop.

For those who need to use the elevator, the limit is one person at a time.

There will be no communal gatherings with food (such as kiddush, “schnapps,” or the like). However, pre-packaged/boxed food may be offered “to go,” as long as it is distributed in a staggered manner that promotes social distancing, and recipients are instructed that food is not to be eaten until they arrive at their cars or at home.

If anyone who has attended a service at Beth El develops any symptoms of COVID-19 or tests positive for COVID-19, it is imperative that they immediately contact Rabbi Schuck- (914) 235-2700 x 230 or dschuck@bethelnr.org to facilitate next steps including contacting the public health department, among other measures.
