CBST COVID Protocols


As you are likely aware, COVID cases in NYC are trending upward (since early May) even as our community prepares for highly anticipated Pride events. CBST’s Medical Advisory Team ask that each of us follow the all too familiar guidelines that have protected us in the past:

  • If you have, or recently gotten over, respiratory symptoms, please do not attend in-person events. All services will be Livestreamed, and we will look forward to welcoming you back soon!
  • Consider wearing a mask, especially while moving thru congested areas.
  • Consider wearing a mask, especially if you or someone you live with have recently traveled by airplane.
  • Please respect personal space by not automatically moving to embrace others. This simple practice was especially effective in protecting our clergy at High Holy Days!
  • Keep up to date on vaccinations for all available respiratory infections, in consultation with your healthcare provider.

Sincere thanks and Happy and Healthy Pride!

Please note these policies are subject to change. Be sure to check back here for the most up-to-date information regarding safety and masking policies.
