1 July 2021 - BC has officially moved to Stage 3 which means there are no capacity limits or restrictions on indoor or outdoor religious gatherings and worship services.   

This adheres to the guidelines and advice provided by the BC Ministry of Health, the BC Provincial Health Officer, the BC Centre for Disease Control and was developed with the input of Dr. Patricia Daly the Vice President, Public Health and Chief Medical Health Officer for Vancouver Coastal Health and others. It is based on the current situation and will be revisited regularly and updated as needed.

Changes made at Chabad:

  • Hand sanitizers will be placed at the entrance and throughout the Shul. Please make good use of them and continue to wash your hands.


Code of Behaviour:

  • It is imperative that every person attending services is symptom-free. Symptoms include, cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, or sore throat, fatigue or generally feeling unwell. If you have the slightest doubt about your health or the health of those living with you, please stay at home.
  • If you have traveled outside of Canada and are not fully vaccinated, please do not attend services until 14 days after your return to Canada.
  • Masks are recommended in indoor public settings for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated. You're fully vaccinated 14 days after dose 2. Masks are optional for children aged 2 to 12. Proof of vaccination does not need to be requested by service providers. Some people may choose to continue to wear a mask after they're fully vaccinated and that's okay
  • We cannot guarantee zero transmission of COVID-19 at Chabad. Each individual, and in particular attendees in high-risk categories, should weigh the risks and benefits of attending services in consultation with a medical professional. No one should feel compelled to attend services, and should only attend if you are completely symptom-free. 

Please note: Until further notice, all weekly classes will continue to run virtually on Zoom. Please visit our website www.ChabadRichmond.com/Calendar for online learning and events.
