Health and Well-being Protocols

Health And Well-Being Protocols

Updated Mary 11, 2022– 10 Iyar 5782 

  • CBH is modifying our COVID-19 protocols in accordance with CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels, which are based on county-level data.  We will adjust our practices based on the Community Level for DeKalb County. 

  • All modifications to the CBH COVID-19 protocols are in keeping with the underlying principles outlined in the Brit Briyut.

    • We affirm our obligation to:

      • Protect one another by promoting public health policy and encouraging vaccination 

      • Act responsibly for our own well-being and that of our fellow congregants, guests, and staff

      • Ensure that connection and participation are accessible to members of our community who are not able to join in-person

  • CBH staff will check the CDC website for the COVID-19 Community Level each Thursday evening, when the CDC updates its website and notify congregants if community levels change, providing details regarding any changes in protocols. 

 Attendance In Person

  • Consistent with our Brit Briyut, we continue to emphasize the importance of vaccination and require that all members and guests participating in in-person CBH events be up-to-date on their vaccinations.

  • No one should attend an in-person CBH event if they feel sick or have symptoms of COVID-19.  

  • You should not attend an in-person CBH event if you have had a positive COVID-19 test during the 5 days before the event. If your symptoms go away, you may attend in-person CBH events on days 6-10 but must wear a mask. 

  • If you are up-to-date on vaccinations and have close contact with someone with COVID-19, you must wear a mask at CBH in-person events for 10 days following the date of your exposure.

  • CBH will continue to gather outside as much as possible.  

  • Indoor events will include options for virtual participation to the greatest extent possible.

  • CBH has made upgrades to the ventilation systems at synagogue and will keep windows and doors open during indoor events to increase ventilation, at all events (regardless of location) if possible.  

When the CDC COVID-19 Community Level for DeKalb County is low or medium:

  • Masks are optional at all CBH in-person events, including the Community School.

  • There are no restrictions on eating, drinking, or singing when community levels are low or medium. 

  • There are no capacity limits for indoor or outdoor events when community levels are low or medium.

When the CDC COVID-19 Community Level for Dekalb County is high:

  • Masks are required at all indoor CBH events.  

  • Ventilation will be increased by opening windows and doors.  

  • Additional protocols for high community level are under development and will be added soon.

If, after attending a CBH gathering, you begin to exhibiting COVID symptoms, please take a test. If you test positive within 48 hrs within being at CBH, please email
