MCJC Shul Reopening Policy - Phase 1
(As of 3/10/2022)

Over the past few months the MCJC board has been in discussion on how and when to reopen the
shul. We are looking forward to the time we can all meet together in person for prayer, learning and
celebration.


Our foremost concern is for the health, safety and feelings of all members of our community.  When the current Omicron variant surge abates and it is advisable to gather inside, we will allow synagogue groups to meet in the shul.  With a trained group member to act as computer host, hybrid gatherings will be possible.  We now have the technology for fully interactive Zoom sessions with remote participants.

 

At a minimum, we will follow county guidelines.  We will continue to update our policy as conditions change.

Phase 2 Reopening Policy

  • All in-person participants must be vaccinated and boosted.  Please be prepared to show documentation of your vaccines and booster.

  • All in-person participants must wear high-quality N95, KN95 or KF94 masks.

  • It is up to the leaders and members of each group to decide whether they want to meet in person.  Computer equipment is available for hybrid meetings with a trained group member on site.  Please contact Marnie Press at marniepress@gmail.com for information and scheduling.  We will have a refresher training in early March, 2022.
