BJC COVID Guidelines
👉 Due to the recent uptick in COVID cases in Maricopa County, please note the following guidelines which are based on the recommendations of our medical advisors.
People who are vaccinated are more protected from the Delta variant than those who are unvaccinated; however, people who are vaccinated can still become infected and possibly infect others.
CDC, ADHS, and MCDPH recommend that all people wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, when in indoor public settings in areas of substantial or high community transmission.
Extra-precaution seating area: This area is designated for the use of the immunocompromised and others that need or want to take a higher level of precaution. Both full vaccination* and masks** are required in this area. Adults and children that are not fully vaccinated and/or are not wearing a mask are not permitted to enter this area. Both the men’s and the women’s extra-precaution areas will be marked with signs. If you would like to be seated in this area for Rosh Hashana/Yom Kippur, please click here and submit the online form.
In the other areas of the shul, the following policy applies to both adults and children:
Fully vaccinated: Masks are optional.
Not fully vaccinated: Masks are required.
*Full vaccination: You have received the full array of vaccine doses and waited the requisite fourteen days.
**Masks: Form fitting, minimum of two-ply, which cover the mouth and nose at all times.
This policy is subject to change in the event of a significant spike or similar situation. This determination will likely not be able to be made until just before Yom Tov.
