TIOH Covid-19 Policy
Last Updated 10/13/22
Temple Israel of Hollywood places a top priority on the health and safety of our community of children, adults, visitors, and employees. Our Reopening Task Force regularly convenes in consultation with a group of medical doctors and monitors all updates from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the Center for Disease Control. The following guidelines are designed to keep our community safe and our temple open. Families with children enrolled in our schools should follow additional protocols to those listed below that are specific to the operation of our school communities. We appreciate your support.
Q: DOES TIOH REQUIRE COVID VACCINATIONS?
A: Vaccinations highly recommended (but not required) for students in our Early Childhood Center. Vaccinations are required for all other individuals who are eligible. Please note:
- Students in the Religious School and other members/visitors to TIOH who are not vaccinated can receive an accommodation since their presence on our campus is more limited than Briskin Elementary students and employees
- Individuals given an accommodation will need to test prior to entry or mask while on campus
Q: DOES TIOH REQUIRE COVID BOOSTERS?
A: Boosters are highly recommended (but not required) for all who are eligible.
Q: WHAT IS THE MASK POLICY?
A: Masks are optional both outdoors and indoors unless otherwise instructed. Currently, masks are highly recommended (but not required) when singing or chanting in a fully indoor space.
