AAC Covid Policy

Update, 1/13/23

Alexandria City's COVID status has been updated to High.

Per Agudas Achim’s COVID policy, we encourage individuals to consider their personal risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19 before attending in-person worship services and take steps that they feel are appropriate for themselves.

Although the CDC, Commonwealth of Virginia, and City of Alexandria no longer mandate masking, they recommend wearing high quality masks in public settings when COVID statuses are at High. Agudas Achim supports anyone who chooses to wear a mask, but we are no longer mandating masking consistent with our policy.

(updated 7/21/22)

Consistent with our Jewish values, including most prominently the value of pikuach nefesh (preservation of life), the Agudas Achim Congregation of Northern Virginia strongly encourages all of its members, staff, and guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID19, in accordance with the best medical advice of the Centers for Disease Control and each person's physician.

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.
