Event Guidelines During COVID-19

Jewish Federation closely monitors the continuously changing situation with COVID-19 and will adjust our event plans accordingly. The following are Federation’s recommended guidelines as of December 2, 2021: 

For the protection and comfort of our guests and staff, Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County requires all attendees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have a negative COVID-19 test done within 72 hours of the program or event as permitted by law. Regular handwashing, sanitizing, wearing a mask, and observing social distancing are strongly encouraged.

In-person attendance at programs and events carries with it an inherent risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus. Federation considers guidance from public health agencies when planning in-person events but cannot ensure that infections will not occur. By attending the event, you acknowledge that you understand and assume the risk of contracting COVID-19, just as you could in any public setting.

Please do not attend or remain at the event if you are experiencing any symptoms. Federation closely monitors the continuously changing situation with COVID-19 and will adjust our event plans accordingly.
