COVID Requirements effective on January 1, 2022
This policy can change based on input from the CBS Covid Task Force, Cook County, the Village of Northbrook and the State of Illinois.
Steps in showing proof for vaccination
Upon arriving at Congregation Beth Shalom, if you do not have proof of vaccination, we unfortunately cannot allow you access to the synagogue. Everyone is an important part of our congregation; we need to protect the health and well-being of our community.
Congregation Beth Shalom is committed to the safety of all of its congregants and staff. Our Medical Advisory Task Force continuously monitors COVID-19 updates from local, state and federal authorities in an effort to provide our community with recommendations and guidelines for their continued safety both inside and outside of the synagogue. For the most recent updates from each of these agencies, click on their respective link provided below.
For everyone’s safety, we urge you to follow the three W’s:
Wear a Mask, Wash your Hands, Watch Your Distance!
If you are not feeling well for any reason or have any symptoms (fever, sinus pain, cough, reduced or altered sense of smell/taste, stuffy nose, chills, fatigue, sore throat, joint pains, or diarrhea) you should not attend worship services at Congregation Beth Shalom.
This policy will continue to be fluid and will be looked at each month and changes to this policy may occur. We will notify the membership of Congregation Beth Shalom upon any changes to this policy.
The health and safety of many people depends upon your adherence to the protocol. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
