Door Policy for In-Person Services and Events
If you are planning a visit to CBST for an in-person service or program, please review our full door policy here. By entering the building, you are attesting that you have been fully vaccinated (including booster if eligible) against COVID-19, will wear a mask when required, have not been diagnosed with or exposed to COVID-19 within the last ten days, and will inform the synagogue if you test positive for COVID-19 after attending services or other programs.
The City and State Health Departments identified poliovirus in sewage in New York City, suggesting local transmission of the polio virus. Polio can lead to paralysis and even death. We urge unvaccinated New Yorkers to get vaccinated now. Learn more about polio and immunization at nyc.gov/health/polio.
MPV (formerly Monkeypox)
The recent emergence of Monkeypox, a rare viral infection often diagnosed in men who have sex with men, presents yet another concern for our community, even as it reminds us of the darkest days of HIV/AIDS. We confront this news without alarm, but with knowledge, care for ourselves and each other, and the faith that brings us all to CBST. To learn more and get guidance for vaccination, see CBST's dedicated webpage and the weekly eNews.
