Updated Health & Safety Protocols for Services
The information below is current as of February 16th, 2022 and is subject to change if/when provincial guidance and restrictions are adjusted in the future. At Beth Tikvah, we remain committed to following the guidance and restrictions set forward by the Provincial Health Officer in providing safe and accessible services and programming. All of our decisions regarding procedures for services and other gatherings are based on the summary found here and the full text of the Provincial order regarding gatherings can be found here.
Currently, Beth Tikvah has the following guidelines in place:
- We expect that all people over the age of 11 who are attending services or programs on Beth Tikvah Synagogue property be fully vaccinated.
a. Proof of full vaccination (BC Vaccine Card electronic or on paper) must be shown upon request for all in-person events/programs and for any service expected to have over 50% capacity in the sanctuary. We will make every effort to note this proof so as to not have to produce it repeatedly.
- Anyone, including staff and visitors, attending services or programs at Beth Tikvah synagogue must properly wear a mask in all public spaces within the building, except while eating or drinking.
- Handwashing, sanitizing, and being mindful of others’ needs for personal space continue to be expected from all who enter our synagogue.
With these guidelines in mind, in-person services will continue as they have in recent months. When there is a simcha or larger event held during services, or for any event held on our property, hired security will conduct vaccine card checks as you enter the building. Proof of vaccination will also be required to attend Kiddush lunch following services once we resume offering food service (more information to come soon).
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to adapt to the changing landscape. We are looking forward to seeing you soon at Beth Tikvah!
Please upload your vaccine card here. Once your card is verified, it will be removed from our system.
