Dear Members and Friends,

As you may be aware, Mayor Martin issued a new mask mandate for the City of Stamford yesterday, requiring all persons to wear masks in indoor public spaces, whether or not they are vaccinated. Our neighbors at CAS have inquired as to whether this mandate applies to houses or worship and were told that it does.

Accordingly, as of August 12, we will be requiring all persons entering the building for any purpose, including minyanim, to wear a mask at all times while inside the building. Masks will not be required outdoors.

Additionally, due to the more highly contagious nature of the Delta variant and potential for more severe disease, we continue to encourage those who may be immunocompromised or at higher risk for infection to consider avoiding indoor settings. Furthermore, anyone who is not feeling well, with cough, fever, loss of smell/taste or other symptoms should please not come to shul.

We are monitoring evolving mandates and guidelines and will update you as needed, including as to the youth program and any impact the evolving situation will have on davening for the Yamim Noraim.

And finally, because we’ve long since been back to shul, we are renaming the RTS committee the Health Advisory Committee.

Warmly,

The Health Advisory Committee
Rabbi Eli Kohl
The YIS Board of Directors
