Covid-19 Guidelines

MHJC COVID-19 Guidelines and Protocols (as of 1/14/22)

(Please note that Manetto Hill Jewish Center adheres to New York State mandates if more stringent that our own guidelines and protocols)

 

On January 14, 2022, the  New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH)  indicating that they are aligning with CDC’s updated COVID-19 isolation and quarantine recommendations. These recommendations shorten quarantine for unvaccinated asymptomatic close contacts to five days. Isolations are also shortened to five days for those recovering from COVID-19 who meet criteria as outlined below. MHJC is adopting this policy effective immediately.

 

As a reminder – Fully vaccinated means 14 days after either single dose of J&J or 14 days after 2nd dose of Pfizer or Moderna.

 

It is very important that you are healthy before entering MHJC.  No one should come into the building if they have a fever or any other COVID-19 symptoms.

 

The NYSDOH isolation and quarantine guidance are as follows:

 

Quarantine (for Individuals who are exposed to someone with COVID-19)

  • All fully vaccinated individuals, who have been exposed to an individual with COVID-19 may continue to come to MHJC, regardless of booster status as long as they are asymptomatic. Testing is suggested on Day 6, but not required.
  • Anyone who is not fully vaccinated (as outlined above) who comes into close contact with someone with COVID-19 should quarantine for at least 5 days (with day 0 being the day of the exposure and going through day 5) after their last close contact, and must receive a negative test result on day 6 or later before entering MHJC.

Isolation (for individuals testing positive for COVID-19)

  • Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate for a minimum of 5 days (regardless of vaccination status) with day 0 being the day of symptom onset or positive test result. If symptoms persist, further isolation will be required. To return to MHJC, individuals must have completed the minimum of 5 days of isolation, be symptom free or have significantly improved symptoms, and be 24 hours without a fever without the use of fever reducing medication.

As a reminder, masks are still required to be worn over the mouth and nose in the building at all times.
