Important Message About COVID-19

(Updated 25 Jan 2022)

In light of the progression of the coronavirus, it is important to stay calm and take reasonable precautions. The CDC states that "there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19."

Our goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy and make them feel comfortable with using our mikvah. We are expanding the disinfection routine that we already do in between each use to include all handheld items.

  • Our Mikvah attendants are all vaccinated, and wear a mask at the Mikvah at all times. We ask that all those attending the Mikvah also come wearing a mask, except during actual Tevilah.
  • We will continue our thorough disinfection routine, with cleaning and sanitizing the preparation rooms and all handheld and reusable items between users.
  • We will continue to provide towels and robes, but women may still bring their own.
  • Preparation will be allowed at the mikvah as they were prior to the COVID restrictions. Please select the appropriate option when you make your appointment. You can choose a bath, shower, or continue to come stay-covid prepared.
  • Our Mikvah attendants will resume pre-Tevillah checking if a woman feels that she is comfortable with that.

If you fall within any of the categories listed below please do not enter the Mikvah building.

  1. If you have tested positive or have been exposed to COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities.
  2. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting or diarrhea.

Please contact the Mikvah if you have any questions.
