Women's Mikveh - Erev Yom Kippur COVID-19 Protocols  

The Mikvah, with the guidance of infectious disease doctors, national mikvaos, and our local Rabbonim, has established protocols to ensure, to the best of our abilities, that attending the mikvah will be a safe, calm and healthy experience. We appreciate your assistance in adhering to the protocol to help us maintain a high standard for the wellbeing of all in our community.  

● Take your temperature before coming to the mikvah. If it’s above 100.2 or if you are ill, please do not come.  

● Please wear a mask at the mikvah at all times except when in the water.  ● If you answer “yes” to any of the following screening questions, you may not come! 

Screening questions: 

● During the last 14 days, have you tested positive for Covid-19 or had contact with anyone who has lab-confirmed COVID-19, is under investigation for COVID-19, or is hospitalized or being treated at home for a respiratory or febrile illness? 

● Have you or anyone living in your house had any of the following symptoms in the past 14 days?

· Please shower at home immediately before coming to the mikvah. Absolutely No baths or showers can be taken at the mikvah.  

The mikvah will not provide supplies. 

Please bring your own towel.  

Upon arrival, please remain in your car if there is not a room available. To minimize contamination risk, please leave all personal items, jewelry, pocketbooks and other unnecessary items at home or in your car. 

· Wash your hands when you arrive in the preparation room and immediately before using the mikvah 

After your immersion please use a clorox wipe and wipe the railings and your door knobs and anything else you touched in the mikvah room. 

The mikvah should not be used for 5 minutes after each patron to give the chemicals time to kill any germs. 

· · According to the CDC website: 

“There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.”

· Please note that we continue to work diligently to maintain a safe chemical level. · Please help us maintain the standard by using the disinfecting wipe provided to wipe the railing on your way out of the mikvah.  

· Upon returning to your room, please wash your hands again. When you are ready to leave, please wash your hands once more in your room.  · Please wipe down surfaces in your room before you leave. 

Leave the facility as quickly as possible. Please do not spend any more time than necessary in the building. Minimizing the amount of time you spend at the mikvah minimizes risk to yourself and others. 

· Please wash your hands often, including when entering and before exiting your room both times. Please refrain from using the hall or waiting room sinks. · 

· Please pay mikvah fee of $5 online https://kbb-mikvah-fund.square.site/ or by leaving you money in the box on the wall near the lobby sink
