Congregation Bonai Shalom’s leadership is monitoring the recommendations and instructions of health care professionals and experts around slowing the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to make decisions about our shul based on those recommendations. To support the safety of all the community members, including children who are not eligible for vaccination, Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) issued Public Health Order 2021-08. The order, approved by Board of Health on Sept. 2, requires mask wearing in all indoor public spaces for all individuals 2 years and older regardless of vaccination status and went into effect on Friday, Sept. 3. Therefore, Face coverings are required when indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
