Community COVID Policies
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we now offer hybrid versions (virtual and in person) of most of our usual in-person events—including Shabbat services, adult education classes, and committee meetings. Everyone eligible for a COVID vaccine must be fully vaccinated in order to attend in-person events. Masks are strongly recommended for those inside the building when COVID transmission rates in Richmond, Chesterfield, Henrico, and Hanover are higher (especially in the red zone on the CDC’s map). Thank you for helping us to minimize the chances of a COVID outbreak in our community.
While face masks are not currently required, we recognize that a new variant or other circumstances could necessitate a return to mask requirements in the future. Any updates about our COVID policies will be announced in our weekly email and posted on our Facebook page. If you are new to Or Ami and do not receive the weekly emails that go out to Or Ami members, you can sign up for our weekly email here to recieve information about upcoming services, classes, and gatherings.
