COVID-19 Procedures

NIGHTLY MIKVAH USAGE  BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

Please note that:

  • The online booking system closes daily 1.5 hours before that evening's appointments. 

  • A required COVID-19 pre-screening has been incorporated into the appointment system.

  • You must completely prepare at home for tevilah, including showering at home.

  • Mask/mouth-nose coverings are required.

  • Patrons may not shower in the Mikvah premises before or following tevilah.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind the community of the following usage protocols, which are based upon the recommendation and guidance of medical professionals and the Teaneck/Bergenfield Rabbonim of the RCBC:


  1. Any woman who is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or any other illness, even if she has been vaccinated or previously tested positive for COVID-19, should not make an appointment to use our Mikvah until she receives medical clearance. 

 

  1. Any woman who is fully vaccinated, even if she has had direct COVID-19 exposure or traveled, may use our Mikvah as long as she is completely asymptomatic. Fully vaccinated is defined as 2 weeks from the second dose of a 2 dose series (like Pfizer or Moderna) or 2 weeks after a single dose vaccine (like J&J).


  1. Any woman who tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days, has been fully symptom free for 72 hours and has medical clearance to exit quarantine, may use our Mikvah even if she has had direct COVID exposure or has traveled.


  1. Any woman who is not fully vaccinated or has not had COVID-19 within the last 90 days (as described above) may not use our Mikvah, if:

    1. she exhibited flu like symptoms WITHIN THE PAST WEEK including fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle pain, chills, and/or diarrhea/nausea, and/or has lost her sense of taste/smell (i.e., not had it) at any point in the last three days and/or exhibits a new rash, until she receives medical clearance,

    2. she is under mandatory quarantine due to being in direct proximity (within six feet for ten minutes) to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 (i.e. within 10 days of contact with known COVID-19 positive), and certainly, anyone living with a family member who is COVID-19 positive, 

    3. within the last 10 days she traveled to (or came from) any state or territory beyond the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware), 

    4. she or anyone in her home is awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.

 

If you have any questions, please email the Mikvah at office@teaneckmikvah.org for guidance.  Thank you for your cooperation and  partnership.
