AAC Covid Policy

(updated 3/7/22)

AAC's COVID-19 policies are now directly consistent with the safety guidelines issued by the CDC and relevant state, local, and government authorities based on our COVID-19 Community Level. Given that Alexandria City and all surrounding counties are at a LOW Community Level according to the new CDC metrics announced last week, effective Friday, March 4, 2022, wearing a mask will be optional for all areas of the synagogue.

Consistent with CDC guidelines, AAC reaffirms its requirements that all staff, congregants, members, and guests be up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccines to participate in any in-person congregational activity

The immediate practical effect: 

  • AAC is lifting our current restrictions on indoor activities, allowing us to move back to regular kiddush and events as soon as reasonably allowable.
  • Masks wearing will become optional for all in-person activities. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, please feel free to do so. Whether our members and guests choose to wear a mask or not while at the synagogue will be their personal decision unless changes occur in the COVID Community Level.
  • Social distancing will no longer be required or enforced.

We are still requiring proof of up-to-date COVID-19 vaccinations in order to be in the building. If you haven't submitted your vaccination and booster information to the office, please email it to Diana Weil and Adrian MarcosPlease note that if you have a medical exemption for the COVID-19 vaccine, we ask that you contact Barry Nove.

As always: If you are sick, have COVID-19 symptoms, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or are awaiting results of a COVID test, please stay home until cleared by your medical provider.
