OZ’s Evolving Covid-19 Response & Policies

This page outlines OZ’s current Covid 19 policies and practices developed by OZ’s board, staff and clergy with support of our Covid Task Force.  The Task Force is currently made up of community members with medical expertise and OZ’s President Jeff Potash.

Updated 4/13/22:
Due to rising cases of the new Covid-19 variant in our community and a test positivity rate over 10%, we are again requiring masks in the synagogue for services and all in person events except while eating or drinking.  Masking remains optional for Hebrew school and preschool students and staff during school hours.

Our current policies:

  2. Contact and Illness Protocols 4-17-2022
  3. OZ Full Circle Preschool COVID 19 Protocols 4-15-2022
