BESTT Covid Policies

This document is a living document, to be updated on at least a monthly basis, beginning July
2020, until the end of the pandemic has been determined by public health officials. This
document may also be updated in light of triggering events, such as updates by federal, state
or local public health experts.

These guidelines are based on the premise of keeping the community spread of COVID-19 under
control. Programming decisions are based on the conditions we believe to be in the best interest
of the health of our community. Beth El cannot make assurances about Covid-19. All persons
who enter onto Beth El’s premises do so voluntarily and at their own risk. Families can and
should make their own determination to send their children to in-person sessions or participate in
alternative learning when available.
