CRC Reopening Plan and COVID Safety Protocols

After many months of connecting virtually and careful consideration and planning by CRC’s Staff, Board, and COVID Task Force, we joyfully announce our reopening plan and the return of gathering in community for Shabbat services!

Reopening Plan

Phase One: Begins this Friday, June 4 with the first of our in-person offerings for Shabbat services (see full information below) and our building opening for limited use, including The Nest and administrative operations.
Phase Two: Tentatively begins with the High Holy Days, for which we are currently planning both indoor and outdoor options for services, pending the current trend of CDC recommendations
Phase Three: Tentatively begins when Religious School resumes in the Fall. We hope that CDC guidelines will allow most, if not all, of us to return to our Sukkat Shalom!
Our staff is closely monitoring CDC recommendations and remains flexible in our operations as we move in and out of the planned phases. Our summer service schedule is intended to provide a wide array of opportunities for our community to gather and participate from afar while honoring the range of comfort and concerns as we emerge from pandemic restrictions. We are passionate about taking precautions to be sure that all who attend feel comfortable and safe and that those who prefer to participate from home can connect in a meaningful way.

COVID Screening for In-Person Events

Individuals participating in any in person events must have had:

  • No COVID-related symptoms in last 24 hours
  • No COVID-positive test in last 14 days
  • No close contact (less than 6 feet apart for more than 15 minutes or unmasked at close range) with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.

All of these questions will be addressed in the digital COVID screening tool that will be required to be completed for all event attendees.
As always, the safety of our community is essential in all that we do. As recommended by our safety professionals, security personnel will be provided for all in person events on CRC’s campus.
All in person services require registration exclusively via Eventbrite,CRC’s office is not able to receive reservations by phone
