DJC COVID-19 Policy for 2023-24 In-Person Services & Programs

Updated July 20th, 2023

Guidelines

We are committed to being an inclusive community.  We ask that you do everything  to ensure that the most vulnerable among us can safely and reliably attend services.  

The DJC COVID-19 policy has been developed to reflect the current requirements of Toronto Public Health, our partners in the Danforth Multi-faith Commons and balancing the needs of our community. 

While we are no longer requiring masks or checking vaccination status, we kindly ask that you consider that your decisions in these matters impact others in our community, and may impact their ability to fully and freely  participate in our programs and services.  

Vaccination

We encourage everyone attending indoor or outdoor services, or other community events at DMC or elsewhere who is currently eligible for vaccination in Ontario to continue to keep their vaccinations up to date.

Mask requirements

We highly encourage all staff, volunteers, members, guests or children over 2, who are attending a service, to wear a face mask that covers the nose, mouth and chin.  If masks have been forgotten there will be a supply at the door

Self Screening

We ask that you self-screen before arrival.  If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, may have been exposed to someone exhibiting symptoms or diagnosed with COVID-19, or have been required to self isolate, please do not attend in person.  You are welcome to join our services offered online.

In the Sanctuaries: East End United & Neighbourhood (EEURM & NUUC)

Please be aware that our clergy team and others on the bimah may be singing unmasked.  If this is a concern for you, consider  allowing ample space between them and where you are sitting.

We ask that while waiting to enter or exit the building or passing through an entrance in the building, you ensure that there is ample space for people to pass through this space quickly and freely.  

Disclosure of Cases

If any attendee discovers they have COVID-19, kindly let us know by email to info@djctoronto.com as quickly as possible. This will help us to keep our community safe while we await instructions from Public Health. We will keep identities confidential.
