COVID-19 Policies and Guidelines at AJ

Our current COVID-19 guidelines as of May 11, 2023 are:

Vaccinations and boosters: While all those eligible to receive COVID vaccinations and boosters are strongly encouraged to do so, vaccination against COVID is no longer a requirement to attend AJ services and events.

Masking: Wearing a mask remains at the discretion of the individual. We ask that such a decision made by an individual member be respected by all AJ members and staff. 

Those with symptoms of upper respiratory infection (coughing, congestion, runny nose, sore throat) are asked to perform a home antigen test for COVID-19. If the test is positive, the COVID-19 isolation protocol is required before entering the building (see below). If the test is negative, we ask that you consider repeating the test in 24-48 hours for further confirmation. Out of consideration for your fellow congregants, we ask that you properly cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing, use hand sanitizer, and consider masking when present in the building.

If you have a known close contact with someone who has or soon develops COVID-19, you do not need to stay home unless you develop symptoms, but please remain masked for 5 days while in the AJ building. Test yourself on day 5. If your test on day 5 is negative and you have not developed symptoms, you may remove your mask at AJ. 

If you test positive and/or become ill with COVID-19, you may not come into the AJ building for 5 days following the day you develop symptoms or, in the absence of symptoms, the day you test positive. You may come into the AJ building on day 6 following the day you develop symptoms and/or test positive, provided that you are feeling better and have been fever-free for 24 hours. If you continue to feel ill, you should continue to isolate and not return to AJ until you are feeling better, are fever-free, or test negative.
