Covid Update

1) The Mikvah is open for preparations. All visits are by appointment only. Reserve online here. If you are experiencing difficulties making an appointment or if you have a special request please text Rochel Greenberg (612)483-5720. 

2) No person with any signs of illness may immerse in the Mikvah.

3) No person that tested positive or has been exposed to Covid-19 may come until their quarantine period has ended. 

4) Please leave all jewelry, lenses, and other personal possessions at home.

5) Please do as much preparation at home as possible. However, the preparation rooms are open and fully stocked for your benefit. 

 If you have any halachic questions please consult with an orthodox Rabbi and call us to discuss. 

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 the pandemic. 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.

New: In addition to the above we have installed a new UV light sterilization to the filtration system.

• 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 or who live with people with increased health risks also must consult a Rav before visiting the Mikvah. In questionable cases, we will be able to accommodate you with the last available appointment. Please contact Rachel directly to arrange this at (612)483-5720.

• 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 to all those affected, and a quick end to this pandemic,

Mrs. Chanie Krasnianski
