Operating Procedures under Covid-19

Kehilat Nitzan follows applicable State Government regulations as of 6 pm, Friday 29 October. Our procedures will be updated as per government regulations.

  1. Religious ceremonies and services return for 150 fully vaccinated people indoors.
  2. Every person aged 12 and over attending Synagogue must provide documentary proof of full vaccination status (two doses).
  3. We will note these documents and acknowledge via a templated email back to the congregant that they have been registered.
  4. We will delete all original documents emailed to the office.
  5. We will note sighting vaccination certificates on a spreadsheet held in a secure drive and accessible by protected password. The spreadsheet will name the holder of the Vaccination certificate, the date sighted, and the name of the person who sighted the document.
  6. The shule will keep the register to ensure that proof of vaccination needs only to be provided once - not for every service.
  7. Anyone looking to attend services, or arriving at shule, will be turned away if they have not provided this proof.
