We are excited to begin offering in-person services at Beth El. In light of COVID-19, we want to create a safe atmosphere and do our best to limit the spread of the virus and keep our members, guests and the greater community safe. With that in mind, the Beth El Reopening Committee has developed the following procedures which embrace CDC guidelines, state and local rules, and expert medical advice.

The following rules will be strictly enforced:
1. Registration: For most programs, participants must sign up in advance, to keep gatherings small and enhance our ability for contact tracing in the event of illness. You will be able to sign up online or call the office to register. For Minyan, in lieu of advance registration attendees will sign in upon arrival at Beth El.
2. Self-Administered Health Survey: No one should come to any event if they are ill or have been exposed to COVID-19. No one subject to quarantine will be permitted to attend any Beth El event.
3. Face Coverings: In accordance with updated CDC guidelines, unvaccinated people are strongly encouraged to wear a mask/face covering while at Beth El; everyone is welcome to wear a mask based on their personal preference. We will continue to offer Zoom or Live Stream for those who are not ready to attend services in person.
4. BYOK/BYOT: Please bring your own kippah, tallit and tefillin.
5. Food Service: Limited food service beginning with kiddush following Shabbat morning services will be served outside.

6. Hand Sanitizer: Please use hand sanitizer frequently, including upon entering the building.
7. Maintaining A Clean Space: We ask for your help to keep our space clean. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be available at all programs and services.
8. Other Logistics:
- Children must remain with a parent/guardian while at Beth El, and they are not permitted in any part of the building without an adult. Currently childcare is not available. We will notify the congregation when childcare becomes available.

Please note, these policies are subject to change. We will provide updates as needed and keep the most current copy of our safety policies online. Questions should be directed to Allison at anewfeld@bethel-omaha.org.
