Thank you for signing up to attend minyan.
PLEASE ACCESS OUR ONLINE COVID QUESTIONNAIRE BY CLICKING THIS LINK https://www.bethelnr.org/covidform NO EARLIER THAN 12 HOURS BEFORE THE TIME OF YOUR MINYAN (FOR SHABBAT MORNING AND AFTERNOON MINYAN PLEASE ACCESS THE QUESTIONNAIRE WITHIN SIX HOURS OF THE BEGINNING OF SHABBAT). THE QUESTIONNAIRE WILL ENSURE THAT YOU ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING COVID GUIDELINES:
Every individual entering Beth El Synagogue Center for any reason will be required to attest to the absence of symptoms of COVID. These include but are not limited to:
o Fever (T>100F or chills)
o Cough and/or shortness of breath
o Sore throat
o Weakness, fatigue, muscle aches
o Loss of taste or smell
o Nasal congestion and/or runny nose
o Nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea
Every individual entering the building will also have to attest that they have not recently (within less than 14 days) been exposed to anyone (a) displaying symptoms of or (b) having tested positive for COVID infection. An exposure is defined as having been within six feet of the person for 10 minutes or more or coming into contact with fluids from this person (such as a cough or sneeze) with or without a mask.
Please be vigilant while in attendance about following all of our Covid protocols, which include wearing a mask that covers the mouth and nose, and maintaining six feet of distance from each other at all times, especially while conversing, and not congregating on the way out at the end of the service. While we cannot guarantee a Covid-free environment, doing so will help protect you, others, and the community in the event that someone in attendance tests positive for COVID-19. We are subject to quarantine and contact tracing directives by the County and NYS State Departments of Health. Although a quarantine was not required recently after a congregant who attended a weekday Mincha/Maariv service tested positive, standards and criteria are fluid and fact-sensitive. Accordingly, it remains possible that everyone attending a given service could be required to quarantine if an attendee tests positive in the following 3 days. It remains shul policy that in the event of a positive case all people who attended the service will not be permitted to come to Beth El for a period of ten days after the exposure.
