Covid-19 Guidelines

Mikvah Chana has long established protocols to ensure to the best of our ability, that using the Mikvah is a safe and healthy experience.  In consideration of the current situation related to COVID-19, we have consulted with medical professionals and Rabbanim and have the following guidelines in place so that our Mikvah can safely operate:


1.  MIKVAH CHANA IS NOW BY APPOINTMENT ONLY WHICH ALLOWS FOR ADEQUATE SPACING AND DISINFECTING BETWEEN USERS.

 

2.  Mikvah preparation rooms are open for women who are fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid.

 

3.  Our preparation rooms are cleaned with disinfectant products between each use. All preparation items are one-time use.

 

4.  Our Mikvah attendant(s) have implemented strict handwashing precautions between each patron.

 

5.  The Mikvah pool water is tested daily and in addition, is taken for laboratory testing as well.

 

6.  In terms of the water of our Mikvah itself which contains Bromine, the CDC has provided the following guidance: “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”. Please see the source of this information here https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/water.html.  Infectious disease specialists have been consulted and have confirmed this information.

 

If you are fully vaccinated and would like to use the MEN’S MIKVAH, please email [email protected].

 

We need to partner to keep our community safe. Please consult with your Rav or Yoetzet Halacha and contact us if you have any concerns about the timing of a mikvah visit as it relates to covid-19 exposure or diagnosis.


Thank you for your partnership and cooperation.  We pray that all those who are sick should have a refuah shleimah and we pray that in zechut of our mitzvah of Taharat Hamishpachah we will be protected physically and spiritually.
