Special procedures to protect everyone During the Covid-19 pandemic

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic our Mikvah has implemented many guidelines and protocols to ensure the safety of all Mikvah users and Mikvah attendants.  With the current outbreak of COVID-19 cases in our community, we have been in consultation with our local medical advisory as well as Rabbi Dr. Aaron Glatt, Chair of the Department of Medicine and Chief of Infectious Diseeases at Mount Sinai South Nassau and National COVID-19 Advisor for the OU and RCA, and would like to reiterate/update some of our protocols and stress the importance of exhibiting caution when using the Mikvah.  

  • Any woman who has tested positive for COVID-19 may not use the Mikvah until the quarantine period has been completed.   As a reminder the quarantine time period for those who test positive is 10 days from the onset of symptoms if symptomatic or 10 days from your positive test if asymptomatic, plus being fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication. 
  • Any woman displaying symptoms for COVID-19 who does not yet have a negative PCR test should not be using the Mikvah. 
  • If a woman is vaccinated and not symptomatic she may use the mikvah even if there are positive family members at home.  
  • A woman who is not vaccinated and has family members at home with a positive test result must wait 7 days from the time of exposure, with a negative test result received on day 5 or later.  If the woman who was exposed would prefer not to test she must wait 10 days from the time of exposure.

As a reminder, all attendants and Mikvah users will be required to wear masks while at the Mikvah.  Women can take off their masks before immersion.  All Mikvah preparation should continue to be done at home.   Every user must bring her own towels, a robe, and flip flops for use at the Mikvah.  No towels, robes, or slippers will be provided.  In addition we will continue to schedule all appointments with proper spacing between appointments to minimize exposure.  

Please note that the Mikvah has contracted with our cleaning crew to be there on a daily basis. This is in addition to the cleaning done by the attendants in the evenings. Disinfectants are being used, and we are specifically focusing on all handheld items, doorknobs and counters. All of the Mikvah pools are filtered and brominated, and chemical levels are checked daily to ensure the safety of the water. According to the CDC, no traces of COVID-19 have been detected in drinking water, and there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through pools or hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection will remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19. For more information, visit the CDC website.

Our highest priority is ensuring that attending the Mikvah is a safe, secure, and healthy experience for all women, including users and attendants.  We ask that you partner with us in achieving this goal and thank you for your diligence in following the above protocols for the safety of our entire community. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at MikvahOhelLeah@gmail.com or call or text the Mikvah line (856) 671-2766.

Sincerely,
Ora Davies & Shari Goldberg
