Important Update from the Coronavirus Task Force - August 16

The CDC’s Covid Data Tracker categorizes Westchester Count as having a High amount of community spread. As a result, masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status. 

Services
Attendance at indoor services is limited to 60 people for all service types. 
Once we return to masks being optional for people who are vaccinated, we will start asking for proof of vaccination. There is currently no limit on attendance at outdoor services.

Funerals
Funerals inside the sanctuary are subject to the same attendance limits as other services. The lawn may be used to accommodate larger services. Facilities rentals are allowed. Outside vendors are required to be vaccinated.

Shiva services
Shiva services in congregants’ homes has resumed. The Hevra Kaddisha volunteers who often lead shiva services have been provided with KN95 masks. The service leader will also set out masks next to the kippot provided. Everyone must be masked during a shiva service led by a representative of Woodlands Community Temple. Shiva service leaders have support of leadership if they choose to leave a location that feels unsafe.  

Small group gatherings
Masks are required.

Singing 
All participants in the Woodlands Singers are required to provide proof of vaccination. Masks are required. Singing masks will be provided.

Religious school
The CDC currently recommends universal masking in K-12 settings. Woodlands will follow CDC guidance. Additionally, the religious school will make every effort to maximize classroom ventilation. HEPA filters have been added to the classrooms. Windows will be open when possible. Window guards are being purchased.

High Holy Days
The congregation will be masked during High Holy Days services. Services will be held in an open-sided tent. Service attendance is limited, and registration required. Please watch your email for further details.

Policies

Vaccination
: In May 2021, the WCT Board of Trustees passed a motion that reads: It is the policy of Woodlands Community Temple that all full-time and part-time employees, and contractors working regularly within the building must be fully vaccinated with respect to COVID-19 and provide evidence of such vaccination, unless the employee has a documented medical condition preventing vaccination or an objection based on a sincerely held religious belief that would require a reasonable accommodation under the law (in which case Woodlands will work with the individual to provide accommodations where possible in accordance with federal or other applicable law). 

Safety of our clergy: In April 2021, the WCT Board of Trustees passed a motion that reads: Whereas Woodlands Community Temple requires masks to be worn at lifecycle events where Woodlands clergy are officiating, clergy are instructed to leave the event if attendees do not comply with the temple Covid 19 guidelines and restrictions for large gatherings. This policy shall apply to events on or off Woodlands' premises and applies regardless of vaccination status.
