Our COVID-19 Safety Measures 

Updated: January 18, 2022

 

Due to recent and ongoing changes regarding COVID-19 in our community, we've updated some of our policies in accordance with county guidelines and recommendations. These measures apply to all CCM programs and are subject to change as the scope of COVID-19 continues to spread.

These measures are in place to protect everyone in our community and ensure that we have the best (and safest) year possible!  We ask families to use their best judgment to keep our community safe. If you think your teen has symptoms, please have them stay home.

COVID Protocols: Wednesdays

  • Vaccines are required to attend, boosters preferred.

  • Masks will be worn at all times: Inside or outside

  • Classrooms will maintain social distancing 

  • Eating will be outside only, separated.

  • Families will sign weekly verification of symptoms - showing up healthy, non-symptomatic.

  • Windows will be kept open where possible.

 

COVID Protocols: Retreats

  • Vaccines will be required to attend, boosters preferred.

  • Negative COVID test will be required before getting on the bus (administered Wednesday night prior to retreat)

  • Masks will be worn at all times: Inside or outside, except during meals and sleeping. (6 Teens per cabin.)

  • We will work to eat outside - weather permitting.

  • Families will sign verification of symptoms - showing up healthy, non-symptomatic.

  • Become ill during Retreat? Families will need to pick up their teen.

COVID Protocols: After a Positive Covid Test

​​​If a learner or educator tests positive for COVID-19 - regardless of vaccination status - that individual should isolate from all others. A learner or educator may return to any in-person Midrasha event or activities after 10 days from onset of symptoms or date of the positive test if:

  1. They have no symptoms AND

  2. are Fever free for 48 hours

COVID Protocols: After Close Contact or Direct Exposure with a Covid Positive Individual

​​​Fully vaccinated teens and up-to-date vaccinated educators without any symptoms do not need to quarantine [away from Midrasha], but testing is still recommended 5 days after close contact. If symptoms develop, isolate at home and inform provider about recent *close contact with a Covid positive individual.

*Close Contact Definition = being within 0-6 feet of a positive person for 15 minutes or longer in a 24-hour period.
