Coronavirus Update #4

Monday, May 10, 2020 / 17 Iyar 5780

 

Mikvah Update:

Please be advised of the protocols in place now to perserve and protect every community member from possible exposure to the virus.

1) All visits are by appointment only. Text the mikvah attendant Rochel Greenberg (612)483-5720.

2) No person with any signs of illness may immerse in the Mikvah. No person exposed to Covid-19 may come until the full 14 day quarantine period has ended.

3) If you have experienced symptoms you may not immerse in the Mikvah until a complete 14 days have passed since all symptoms have stopped. (With the exception of a lingering cough and your sense of smell which may take months to fully return).

4) All preparations must be done at home. Come to the Mikvah completely ready to immerse as is its a Friday night immersion. At the Mikvah you will look yourself over and take one extra dip in the Mikvah.

5) Come to the Mikvah wearing a mask and gloves. Please dispose of your gloves upon arrival and wash your hands thouroughly as soon as you enter the preparation room. Please wear your mask until you are ready to immerse. 

6) Please leave all jewelry lenses and other personal possesions at home.

 If you any questions please consult with a Rov and call us to discuss.

Please note: the Mikvah attendant will stand several feet away from you and have no physical contact. She will be wearing a mask and gloves. Please be extra careful with your preparations as the attendant will not be in a position to check you over.


In addition please note the following:

• Each room is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between each use. We maintain a rigorous cleaning schedule to eliminate transmittal of illnesses.

• The Mikvah pools, in addition to our usual bromine and chlorination filtration system, are receiving additional rigorous chlorine treatments on a continuous basis during the duration of this virus outbreak. We are following CDC guidance for proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection of our Mikvah which inactivates the virus that causes COVID-19 in pools and hot tubs. 

• Community members must abide by the self quarantine rules and be extra vigilant in maintaining best practices to eliminate person to person contamination. Any person who is under quarantine must consult her local Orthodox Rabbi and our Mikvah before visiting our facility. In addition, women with compromised immune health also must consult a Rav before visiting the Mikvah. 

• Do not come to the Mikvah with any symptoms of illness, including fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and upper respiratory infection.  This is in accordance with the CDC and the advice of various doctors.
 

May we share only besurot tovot!!!  In the merit of the observance of this holy mitzvah and our eternal commitment to the laws of family purity, may Hashem protect us and empower us to bring spiritual and physical protection to our homes, our communities, and to the entire world. Our faith in Hashem is strong! With wishes for a complete refuah sheleimah for Avraham Shmuel ben Rachel as well as to all those affected, and a quick end to this pandemic,

Mission Statement
Location: 419 East 77th Street, between First and York Avenues on the Upper East Side of Manhattan
 
The Mikvah entrance is the door to the right of the stairs, at the street level. A female guard will admit you.
 
After descending a grand staircase, the Mikvah attendant will welcome you and escort you to one of our eight magnificent preparation rooms. We offer a spacious Bridal Suite for the bride-to-be. Each room is equipped with a multi-directional shower or jacuzzi bathtub. Relax amidst soft music and radiant floor heating. Amenities available to help with your preparations include luxurious towels and robes, personal toiletries. Each client receives a new toothbrush, comb, and slippers which you are welcome to take home with you!
 
Our intercom system allows you to communicate directly with the Mikvah attendant. After you notify her, the attendant will escort you to the Mikvah through a private entrance.
 
The Mikvah is a pristine miniature pool of warm water that lies beneath a mosaic of blue sky and white clouds. It is meticulously cleaned through a natural oxidation process. After you descend and immerse once in the warm Mikvah waters, you recite a blessing and then immerse again. The Mikvah attendant can assist you with the blessing.
 
This is an opportune moment to pray for yourself and for all your loved ones.
